Nau mai, haere mai ki Kōkiri!

Up to 10 ventures will be accepted into the 2020 programme, gaining access to Aotearoa’s dedicated Māori business accelerator with access to start-up mentors, coaches, investor networks plus a $10,000 start-up grant.

Programme participants will complete a unique education, capability and founder wellbeing programme over 12 weeks. At the end of the programme, each venture will have the opportunity to pitch to an investor panel and then their whānau, supporters and the wider business community at our Showcase Day.
