Got a business idea? We’ll help you get started!

Need help with a business idea? Join the inspiring Settlement Start Up programme! You’ll get a year’s worth of 1 on 1 support and advice, access to mentors and experts, regular workshops, networking and community events, plus a 12 month co-working space membership at The Settlement. Join the success of previous participants who’ve gone on to create businesses from sustainable activewear to modular housing systems and possum fur eyelashes to at-home coffee brewers.

Start up facilitator Meredith Walshe says this is a perfect opportunity to join a collective of like-minded entrepreneurs and surround yourself with open minds and inspiration.“By joining us at The Settlement’s shared working space in Jackson Street you can be part of a great community alongside other start-ups and existing Settlement residents.”

Hutt City Council’s senior business and economy advisor James Lamb says he’s always impressed with talent that emerges around our city.

“We’re really supportive of programmes like this that nurtures locals to have their own thriving, sustainable and ultimately successful businesses”.

The programme is aimed at scalable start-ups in the product, design, manufacturing or technology sector and is facilitated and led by The Settlement founders Meredith and James Walshe, with support from Hutt City Council and Creative HQ.

Applications are open for the third intake starting late July 2021. Hurry, spaces are limited.
