Take your startup to the world.
If your business has global potential and you’re ready to acquire customers in New Zealand or overseas, Sprint Global is perfect for you.
It’s a flexible, accelerator-style programme focused squarely on generating revenue through customer acquisition. So you can grow global, faster.
Applications for Round One have now closed.
Sprint Global takes startups with a validated business model and working product, and accelerates their customer acquisition and global expansion by providing access to mentors, sector experts, investors and other resources.
Flexibility to Suit Your Needs
The programme is run over two separate eight-week rounds, with the option to complete both rounds or just one. Sprint Global can also largely be completed remotely, providing a flexible solution to those based outside of Auckland.
International Market Immersion
Participants of Sprint Global are also given the opportunity to take part in an in-market immersion week in Silicon Valley during October 2019, including attending the TechCrunch Disrupt conference.
