About entré

“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It's as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” 
Nolan Bushnell - Entrepreneur

Entré is a not-for-profit University of Canterbury company, run by students for all tertiary students in the Canterbury region. 

Entré exists to foster an entrepreneurial spirit, to encourage innovation and creativity and to educate students on the basic elements of business development. 

Through competitions, educational workshops and networking events, entré seeks to provide students from all disciplines with real business-world experience.  Entré is committed to providing students with hands-on opportunities and industry exposure - things that are not provided in the lecture theatre.

Entré also hosts entré for lunch, a series of business seminars designed to cover the basic knowledge essential to an entrepreneur. Presented by industry experts, each seminar provides relevant and practical knowledge for students endeavouring to enter the business world.

So, whether you are in Commerce, Engineering, Arts, Law, Science, Education or from Ara – entré offers something for everyone.
