The University of Auckland Entrepreneurs Challenge

The University of Auckland Business School Entrepreneurs' Challenge provides up to one million dollars annually for investment in growth-oriented SMEs.

Since the launch in 2009, made possible by a generous $4 million gift from Kiwi philanthropist and businessman, Charles Bidwill and a further 1 million dollars from an anonymous donor, 20 companies have been awarded funding - companies, we believe embody the excellence and ingenuity of New Zealand's best entrepreneurs.

Funding is provided in the form of a loan and possibly some equity warrants offered on terms more favourable than those prevailing in the market for companies of a similar age, stage and risk profile.
