Competing on the global business stage has often been compared to competing in the Olympics. Companies are up against the best in the world and need the right ecosystem of support, investment and talent in order to perform and take on international heavy hitters.

This one day bus tour for startup entrepreneurs will visit some of the most successful and innovative global businesses in Auckland North. This is the focus region for Massey University’s Grow North initiative to create an “Innovation Corridor”. These companies will open their doors to the select tour group to share their inspirational stories and showcase their impact on the global stage. Participants will get the chance to network with like-minded entrepreneurs and learn about how these global companies have scaled to serve international markets.

This bus tour was a huge success last year and this year it will conclude with an additional event called “Amplify and Collision = Investors and Entrepreneurs”. This unconventional curated panel will enable you to get inside the investor and entrepreneur mindset and find out what you need to do to raise capital in New Zealand.

Tour ‘stops’ will include: Integrated Control Technology, Smales Farm B:hive, Sealegs International, EROAD, ecentre at Massey University.

This could be the best one day investment of your time ever. Expand your network and meet other entrepreneurs, successful startup founders, investors, mentors and other people who support startups. Find out what help you can get to test, develop, launch and scale your business idea to have impact in global markets!
