UCE is developing New Zealand’s next generation of entrepreneurial and innovation talent with support from the entrepreneurial ecosystem, locally, and internationally. UCE works closely with organisations to create value for both partners and students through a range of collaborative projects and experiences. If you like to get involved, we welcome your interest.

Mentors

Mentors play a key role in supporting the development of entrepreneurial and innovative students. There are many ways that you can participate as a mentor whether it is supporting a student business or providing advice in a challenge.

Organisations

Many organisations have found value from collaborating with our students. We welcome opportunities for our students to apply their knowledge to real-world problems within organisations and the community. Recent examples include the NZTA Kaikoura Challenge, and the Lane Neave LawTech bootcamp.

Investors

We welcome support from the business community in the form of scholarships, sponsorship and donations. Please contact us if you would like to discuss this opportunity further.
