Build your startuphere at AUT

We want to ignite your entrepreneurial thinking. Join an epic community of budding entrepreneurs, gain critical insights into launching a startup and get all the support you need to take your idea from paper to real life.


Our programmes will nurture your entrepreneurial thinking and help you refine your ideas. Whether it's through an in-depth pre-accelerator programme or the fast-paced X Challenge competition, we’ll help you translate your ideas into reality.


Clubs, events, working spaces and digital tools can provide invaluable support as you clarify your thinking, research your market and bounce ideas off others. Check out the in-person and online groups, startup documents and templates, and events we can connect you with.
