Alumni CO.STARTERS scholarships

Have an idea you think could turn into a business? At AUT we want to make it easier for anyone with a business idea to get started. So we're offering subsidised scholarships for AUT alumni to take part in the highly successful CO.STARTERS programme.

CO.STARTERS equips aspiring entrepreneurs with the insights, relationships, and tools needed to take the next step in building a sustainable business. It's run part time (3 hours per week) over 9 weeks, so you don't need to give up the day job (just yet, anyway), to be able to take part.
