Celebrating entrepreneurship and innovation around New Zealand.
Join us online and on social media this November, as we celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week by embarking on a 16-day “digital roadshow” to showcase and celebrate the entrepreneurs and organisations helping drive New Zealand forward in 2020.
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 2020 Innovation Showcase is your chance to get inspired, get involved and get featured!
Kicking off at the start of Global Entrepreneurship Week on 16 November, we’ll be showcasing entrepreneurs and startup ecosystem members in a new region each day through a series of stories, interviews and profiles. Starting in the Queenstown Lakes District, home of #nzentrepreneur, we’ll be working our way up the country covering 16 different regions in all before finishing our virtual tour in Northland on December 7.
To ensure each region is well represented we’ll be featuring innovative startups or SME businesses from each of the following regions: Queenstown Lakes, Southland, West Coast, Tasman-Nelson, Marlborough, Canterbury, Otago, Wellington, Manawatu-Whanganui, Taranaki, Hawke’s Bay, Gisborne, Bay of Plenty, Waikato, Auckland and Northland.
For every business taking part in the showcase, we’ll be giving away a scholarship to help young New Zealanders from their region learn about entrepreneurship with our Startup NZ Entrepreneurs Programme. The more support we get from businesses in each region, the more scholarships we can give. Good for you and great for NZ!
