Massey University is closer than you think.

Venture Taranaki has partnered with Massey University to encourage Taranaki businesses and industry sectors to access Massey University’s expertise, knowledge and innovation when looking to grow. This means that not only can Venture Taranaki help support Taranaki businesses in gaining access to Massey’s expert team for information or research and development expertise, but we also have strong ties with capable students who can be engaged for internships or jobs in Taranaki.

The partnership builds on the long association Massey University has with Taranaki and aims to expand longstanding research, teaching and alumni connections between Massey and Taranaki’s business sector and wider communities. The economic drivers for Taranaki are also amongst Massey’s strengths – food, agriculture, engineering and sustainability. And with Massey’s drive to support innovation and to work on some of the big challenges for NZ, it’s an exceptionally good fit.

We have a Massey University staff member based in the Venture Taranaki office, who is here to help Taranaki businesses identify opportunities where the University’s faculties, staff and research centres can be of assistance.
