X Challenge

Come and find out what it takes to enter AUT's X Challenge 'The Accelerator' competition. (Plus there'll be Pizza!)

This session will give you some insight into what you'll need to put together to submit an entry. There will be plenty of support to guide you along the way, and a series of workshops over the next 5 weeks that cover each of the submission questions.

This session is also about giving you the opportunity to form a team – you’ve got an idea but really need an engineer or a software developer or a marketing student, let’s see if we can pair you up! If you’re not an AUT student but you've got an idea or something that could help? Come along and see if you can find a student to team up with! You don't have to be a student to enter - you just need at least one current AUT student on your team.

X Challenge is a university-wide competition that gives every AUT student an opportunity to develop an idea for a business, cause or project and participate in a fun entrepreneurial experience – with great cash prizes to help you take the next step on your entrepreneurial journey.

From the Accelerator entries, 12 Finalists will be selected to take part in a Dragons’ Den style pitch night on 22nd November, where $40K in cash as well as a selection of in-kind prizes are up for grabs.

X Challenge ‘The Accelerator’ launches Wednesday 15th August. The deadline for entries is midnight Wednesday 19th September.

Can’t make the date but still keen? Join our X Challenge Community Facebook group in the links above and let us know what you’re looking for / how you want to be involved and keep up to date with events, resources and news.
