Entrepreneurs Unleashed

Our Entrepreneurs Unleashed Event Series brings together Kiwi entrepreneurs to share real, practical advise for starting and growing companies.


This evening event is the perfect place for aspiring entrepreneurs, or those in their first year of business, to gain insights from founders and meet like-minded others. Each event will see two founders or startup specialists share stories and insights. Events are usually themed so founders cover particular topics, such as purpose driven business, funding, community, or particular pathways to success.
