Office of Innovation
The Office of Innovation founded Zuventurez to raise up Kingdom-focused entrepreneurs and their startups from the Azusa Pacific University community—undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Entrepreneurs who choose to go through Zuventurez experience high-quality support from mentors and advisors in a program designed to address the unique needs of each new business, beginning with an idea and continuing into a viable organization. Dream, build, launch, and grow your startup with resources from APU’s startup community.
Zuventures invites all entrepreneurial-minded individuals from every major at APU to take part in a free eight-week series of workshops in the fall that mentors, coaches, and equips students, alumni, faculty, and staff to launch their ideas into businesses. These workshops build toward Zuventurez Pitch, a startup competition in which individuals and teams pitch their concepts to startup founders, angel investors, and top-level professionals for the chance to win a $15,000 prize.
Imagine the next Mark Zuckerberg coming out of APU—someone with a sustainable business and a philanthropic spirit, but also with a heart for Jesus Christ and a desire to expand the Kingdom.
