Yesterday evening, Alleasing attended the Spark Ideas Challenge, celebrating the achievements of the 1,000 for $1,000 competition entrants. This event followed the signing of a 12 month sponsorship agreement with Spark, an entrepreneurial-development program and business planning competition run by The University of Auckland’s Business School.
Robert Spano, Alleasing’s Chief Executive Officer said: “Alleasing is delighted to be involved with Spark.”
“This highly successful program aligns with our aspiration to give back to the community — it is an exceptional initiative, which supports and inspires entrepreneurs across a diverse range of disciplines, including business, engineering, medicine, science, law and the arts.
“We look forward to working with the Spark team as they continue to re-shape attitudes and aspirations.”
Launched in 2003, Spark utilises support from the business community through sponsorship, guest lecturing, judging, and mentoring.
Geoff Whitcher, co-Director of the Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Auckland said: “Spark is grateful for Alleasing’s support.”
“The Spark program seeks to encourage students and staff to explore ways of creating businesses based on ideas or innovations arising from their research, studies and creative thinking.
“We could not achieve our goals without the support of our sponsors, who give generously in both a monetary sense and through participation in the program’s activities.”
