Applications Open for Sprint Launch: Take Your Startup to the Next Level

Sprint Launch from the ecentre at Massey University offers tech startups their best chance of securing early stage investment by not thinking about investment at all. 

The Sprint Launch programme is a unique proposition, drawing on Massey University’s ground-breaking research, which reveals that early customer traction and thinking global from day one generates local investor interest. 

Now in its second iteration, the ecentre is accepting applications from New Zealand startups who want to take their business to the next level. 

What is Sprint Launch?

An intensive 8-week programme that takes startups from prototype to first customers by opening doors to mentorship, business development and capital.
