EXCITING NEWS: We are very excited to announce that these sessions will be held in Ministry of Awesome's new AwesomeHQ located in the Kahukura Building on Moorhouse Avenue (between Madras & Barbadoes). We look forward to welcoming everyone coming along to these sessions into our new space.

Kahukura Building

Ministry of Awesome's Activator Sessions are made up of 20-minute mentoring sessions where entrepreneurs of all sizes and stages talk through their tech startup, venture or idea and get focused feedback from our Startup Activation Coordinator and a veteran panel of business experts. This is your opportunity to use their expertise and networks to ensure your best possible chance of success.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Select a 20-minute appointment that works for you and tell us about your idea or your business.

  2. Feel free to bring along any materials that will assist you (notes, drawings, websites, photos, presentations, etc.) or just bring you.

  3. These sessions are always sold out so please show up on time, get ready to focus, and gear up for a great session.
