AUT is supporting a new initiative, designed to help Kiwi innovators get their idea off the ground and build a successful business.
There's nothing like the energy generated when a bunch of innovators come together. That's the idea behind Innovation Heroes, which aims to provide innovators with quick tips, education and inspiration from others that have 'been there done that.'
Amongst the online support on offer is a series of short films, featuring Kiwi innovators who talk about their experiences and insights. Each film focuses on specific elements needed to create a successful business, from developing a market strategy and plan to overcoming the mental barriers that can make it hard to start a new business. AUT is the sponsor of the Research and Development video.
The university is also providing support in the form of two expert coaches. Steve Corbett, CEO of AUT Enterprises and Rosanne Ellis from RIO are on hand to support and answer any questions from innovators and young companies, and potentially connect them with other areas of the university.
To watch the films and for more information on Innovation Heroes, visit Innovation Council NZ's website.
