Massey’s business incubator the ecentre is refocusing its activities to concentrate on supporting students and staff.
Ecentre board chairman and Massey University dean, enterprise Dr Gavin Clark says the Auckland-based ecentre will now lead entrepreneurial training and capability development across the University’s three campuses.
“The ecentre’s new mission puts it at the centre of the University’s ambitions for developing and growing student and staff enterprise,” Dr Clark says.
“We have made significant investments in our enterprise strategy this year, with new Student Enterprise Studios opening on all three campuses. The studios now provide a pan-campus network for the ecentre to engage larger numbers of students and faculty.”
“We are excited to inspire the entrepreneurial potential of students and staff from all disciplines. We have an important role to play in helping them to develop and validate their business ideas, including through to the establishment of start-up companies.”
The goal is to generate an “entrepreneurial insurgency” in the massey university student community that will feed into the resources and talents of the wider community and external enterprise ecosystem.
The ecentre will be located in the university‘s on-campus student enterprise studios.
