GetFUNDED Workshop Open to Innovative Postgrads

Are you a researcher looking to get your project investor-ready, an engineer or designer looking for funding, or an entrepreneur looking to scale your idea?

On March 7th, the good folks from KiwiNet will be on the AUT City Campus to run a GetFUNDED workshop. This is designed to help innovators identify the value proposition of their idea, and build a case for investment.

It’s an in-person, full on, one day experience with mentorship, comradeship, market validation, lean canvasing, customer discovery and opportunity assessment tools that allow for deeper insights when marshalling an idea into shape or taking your project to the next level. Bring an idea, and watch it soar!

AUT Ventures, the team that helps commercialise AUT research, is offering free sponsored places (usually $250) to AUT researchers, including postgrad students, who have an idea to gain impact from their research. Here’s what they had to say about the workshop:

“At AUT Ventures, we recognize the immense value that the GetFUNDED! workshop brings to motivated researchers, designers and engineers seeking to bridge the gap between their innovative ideas and real-world impact. Previous attendees of GetFUNDED! have left equipped with the tools and confidence needed to propel their projects forward and open doors to funding opportunities. For any researcher seeking to accelerate their journey from concept to investment, GetFUNDED! comes highly recommended!”
