"Long-term consistency trumps short-term intensity."
- Bruce Lee

In the return to 'normal', we hope that you are holding onto the slow and steady pace that lockdown gifted most of us. The Venture Centre team too are doing their best to incorporate lockdown lessons into their new work approach.

As things continue to evolve and change throughout our city and nation, we hope to remain and be a steady, present "friend". In this spirit of steadiness, our events will be remaining online for the duration of Level 2, meaning one less change for you to embrace and maybe a little more energy to invest in your entrepreneurial journey. 

Check out this month's awesome events, all delivered via video-conferencing. Simply sign up for the session as per usual and we will let you know the link to join the session virtually prior to the scheduled start time.

“Well done is better than well said.”
Benjamin Franklin

Venture Centre is the place to get inspired and take action from. Hence our collaboration this year with Sustainable Backyards, the month-long collection of events around the Bay of Plenty which aims to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of people in the community via informative workshops and activities.

Join us at Consuming for Good on March 19th at Basestation to hear from a panel of impact entrepreneurs who are taking on the problem of plastic and packaging. More event information below or check out Sustainable Backyards website. 

The People of Tauranga Startup Weekend 2019 

Meet the Tauranga City Council Candidates at Tauranga Startup Weekend

How might we deliver more digital and entrepreneurial youth programmes, further and in more diverse places in our community?

Violence Free Future is a grassroots initiative, a “movement of change” born here in Tauranga Moana by locals, for locals.

Forget the fruits of your labour; what about using technology instead?

Hailing from the world of education and its communities of practice, I had been dabbling with launching my own business...

It was an honour and a privilege for Venture Centre to be invited by Priority One, Tauranga's economic development agency, to present at their 2016 AGM.
