Founders & Start-ups

Take your passion and make it happen.

Entrepreneurs play a key role in the economy. They have the skills and initiative to anticipate current and future needs and bring new ideas to market.

AUT Ventures aims to build the next generation of NZ founders. We will work with you to:

  • Protect your intellectual property
  • Access negotiation, mediation, and legal services
  • Protect your right to publish and carry out research
  • Avoid common pitfalls at an early stage
  • Access commercial funding sources

We have a range of opportunities for AUT staff, students, and alumni, with a startup idea.
