Audacious is about nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit in Dunedin students. it's not about 'audacious ideas', it is about being audacious by taking up the challenge of starting a business.

With our Semester Two workshops just completed, our Polytech and University students are about to submit their entries for judging.

There are 160 students from a variety of disciplines signed up for information, so we are hoping for an excellent batch of business ideas this semester.

Success comes in many forms, and developing a business is as much about the journey as it is making a profit.

That is what Jason Leong has found eight years after starting a company from a business plan presented at Audacious.

Over 1000 schools worldwide are using a digital learning resource developed by an Audacious Challenge winner.

Education Perfect, based in Dunedin began as a language tool to help students with vocabulary retention, and has since expanded into English, maths and science modules. It’s fun, competitive effective, and supports key achievement standards.
