CO-FOUNDER & DIRECTOR OF URBANAUT BREWING
Urbanaut brewery lies in the heart of Kingsland, making craft beers in the epicentre of hipster culture. Made for global citizens who have a lust for travel, Simon (left) and his two Co-Founders take inspiration from cities across the globe and have made landmark decisions such as ditching glass bottles for canned beer (a much more eco-friendly option). Creating delicious concoctions, Urbanaut will make you feel like you’re globetrotting in Bogota or Copacabana.
Prior to settling down with Urbanaut, Simon was also the Director at Evoke Developments. A firm that specialised in the renovation and development of high quality residential homes. In addition to dabbling in the sports hospitality industry with Experience Group, one of New Zealand’s largest hospitality providers for major sporting events.

What will happen at the workshop?
Joining 50 other inspired students, the Lunch with an Entrepreneur workshop will see you enter a fun-filled day at a collab working space in Auckland.
Who can attend the workshop?
We only have limited spots of 50 students per workshop! In your application, showcase that you’re a student who has a passion for searching for opportunities with the mindset of constant learning and growth.
What can I expect?
- A half-day workshop that will give you an insight into the skills that are highly sought by employers across the globe. With engaging workshop activities inspired by rapid growth companies such as Amazon and Google, this is not your typical workshop.
- One lucky student will have the opportunity to pitch their business idea and receive feedback from the entrepreneur.
- The guest entrepreneur will give you a look into the highs and lows of their career journey. The day will be wrapped up with a fully catered lunch, giving you the chance to network with the entrepreneur in an intimate environment.
Lunch with an Entrepreneur is part of the ON: Entrepreneurship Series.
We aim to create a network of businesses, individual leaders, and talented students to help young New Zealanders progress to their next destination.
