Live the Dream is an incubator programme that supports NZ's young social entrepreneurs to build capability and bring their ventures to life.

Live the Dream is currently on hold for 2018.

Whilst Live the Dream ran as a 9-week intensive programme over summer for the past four years, we're now working to develop this into a part-time incubator programme that runs throughout the year. Join our mailing list to ensure you're in the loop!


What is Live the Dream?

Live the Dream began as New Zealand’s first programme to develop young social entrepreneurs and their ventures. For the past three year's it's been run over 9-weeks as an intensive summer programme across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, but due to changing needs we are now working to evolve it into a part-time incubator programme that provides year-round support. More than 100 people have graduated from the programme – a few of them below!

Who is it for?

Live the Dream attracts a diverse range of young people driven to solve the pressing problems our world faces – its for school leavers, tertiary students and young professionals aged 18-30. More than 100 alumni have graduated from the programme. Some are cranking their ventures generating revenues and creating impact, and have gone on to win various awards. Some have started new ventures, and others have found meaningful work.
