PopUp Business School Aotearoa reinvents how to start a small business right here in New Zealand. Our courses run for ten days, target part-timers, beneficiaries and those with little business acumen, and (the best bit) are free for participants.
The Pop Up Business School originated in the United Kingdom where founders Alan Donegan and Simon Paine recognised traditional ways of starting businesses just wasn’t working. Since 2012, they have helped over 1,500 small businesses start up across the United Kingdom.

<li>How to set a business up for free</li>
<li>Build a website with no money</li>
<li>The quickest way to find a customer</li>
<li>Motivational, confidence building content</li>
