Join us online and on social media this November, as we celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week by taking a “virtual” roadshow to showcase and celebrate the entrepreneurs and organisations helping drive New Zealand forward in 2022.

Partnering with innovation hubs around the country, we’ll be meeting startups, innovative SME’s and the people supporting them from the deep South to the far North and every region in between.

If you’re a brave-hearted business owner, sizzling startup, or inspiring innovator the Startup NZ 2022 Innovation Showcase is your chance to get inspired, get involved and get featured!

Who can take part?

Kicking off as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week happening 14-20 November, we’ll be showcasing entrepreneurs, startups and innovative SME businesses selected by NZ Entrepreneur and our startup ecosystem partners through a series of stories, interviews and profiles.

Good for you, great for NZ!

For every participating story, we’ll be giving away a scholarship to help young New Zealanders learn about entrepreneurship with our Startup NZ Entrepreneurs Programme. Good for the businesses taking part and great for New Zealand!
