Listen up, Hamilton entrepreneurs: there's just over a month to go until the Innes48 startup competition and there's space for another six teams to sign up.
The carrot consists of more than $50,000 worth of prizes to help kickstart a business and $10,000 cash.
The star judging panel includes NetValue chief executive Graham Gaylard, Enterprise Angels executive director Bill Murphy, and investor and former Fonterra CIO Marcel van den Assum.
Eight startup teams and 25 mentors (with room for up to another 10 more) are already on board. Registration is free.
