Plenty of Growth Opportunities in June

"Long-term consistency trumps short-term intensity."
- Bruce Lee

In the return to 'normal', we hope that you are holding onto the slow and steady pace that lockdown gifted most of us. The Venture Centre team too are doing their best to incorporate lockdown lessons into their new work approach.

As things continue to evolve and change throughout our city and nation, we hope to remain and be a steady, present "friend". In this spirit of steadiness, our events will be remaining online for the duration of Level 2, meaning one less change for you to embrace and maybe a little more energy to invest in your entrepreneurial journey. 

Check out this month's awesome events, all delivered via video-conferencing. Simply sign up for the session as per usual and we will let you know the link to join the session virtually prior to the scheduled start time.
