Meet the Team

Our executive team have volunteered to each play key roles in the making Entré a reality. Each team member is also given an opportunity to experience being part of a structured executive team.


Entré is a place for people to explore their innovative side. To come up with ideas, pursue entrepreneurial ventures and see where it can take you. To see what you can learn about running a business and see how far you can push yourself.

This year at entre we are taking care of our roots. So, while keeping our events and competitions open to all tertiary students in the Canterbury region, we’ve got a particular focus on the University of Canterbury. This year is also a year of renewal. The time has come for entre to revisit our flagship competitions and events and change with the tides, while listening to you, our student members. We are fine tuning our flagship competition, now known as the entré Start-Up Challenge; introducing more innovative competitions; and growing the entré community, to keep you involved in the conversation.

Being a part of entre will teach you to listen to your intuition, follow your purpose, engage with a wide range of people and help you discover what entrepreneurship means to you. Become a part of the entré family and meet like-minded individuals who grow alongside you as you pursue business.
