NZGCP are proud to sponsor Velocity; a student entrepreneurship programme


We're all about fostering Kiwi innovation and entrepreneurship .. and what better way to do so, than by sponsoring one of New Zealand's leading student development programmes; VELOCITY.

Velocity is the University of Auckland’s student entrepreneurship development programme, delivered through the University of Auckland Business School’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and it's free for all University of Auckland students to participate in.


Check out more on the programme and our partnership HERE.


The Velocity programme kick-off event took place on 16 March 2021. A shout out to Ang Nayyar, the CEO and Co-founder of StrutFit (one of our Aspire portfolio companies) for an inspiring presentation! ... Bold ideas. Big dreams. We’ll invest in that!
