ABOUT US


Director’s welcome

Not everyone will be an entrepreneur, but everyone should think like one. This has been the ethos behind the University of Auckland Business School’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE). Our programmes, events, workshops and the facilities on offer through our innovation hub and maker space are freely available to all students and staff of the University of Auckland, no matter what they are studying or what their goals are. An entrepreneurial mindset and innovative capability are essential both to thrive in this new world of work, and to build the future that we want to live in.

CIE’s team is dedicated to helping the University of Auckland to develop savvy, entrepreneurial graduates to ensure New Zealand’s longer-term economic, social and environmental prosperity. Our commitment and expertise was recently recognised when the University of Auckland was named Entrepreneurial University of the Year at the Asia-Pacific Triple E Entrepreneurship and Engagement Excellence Awards in Higher Education.

Since the inception of our first entrepreneurship programme in 2003, CIE has helped support over 20,000 students to unleash their potential. Our entrepreneurs have started more than 150 ventures, raised nearly $300 million in investment and created over 850 jobs. Our innovators have become industry leaders and change-makers. And the world is a better place for all of them.

If you want support to achieve your goals, or want to help us support the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs – join us!
