Certificate in Tech Product Development Essentials (Awaiting NZQA approval for 2022)

Do you have a tech startup idea? Are you interested to solve real world business and community problems with the power of the Internet? Are you an entrepreneur wanting to apply technology to better solve problems for your customers? Do you want the skills to build the technology solution yourself?

If you said yes to all of the above questions, then this programme is for you.

By the end of this programme, you will have a high-fidelity prototype, pitch to a group of investors and have the skills to build the tech product.

Note: This accelerator is currently open to domestic students only. This is not a start-up accelerator. We will not cover start-up essentials like finance or marketing, though we are happy to connect you with relevant start-up accelerators should you want to up-skill in that space.

Key topics that will be covered are:

  • Idea validation
  • Market validation
  • Hi-fidelity prototyping
  • Emerging technology and software development
