Our ventures

On May 31, 2022, we celebrated the graduation of the HandZone 3rd Cohort, with great pitches in front of friends, family, investors & mentors from our promising 6 early-stage ventures.


This Cohort was attended by students and included graduate projects from various HIT faculties ranging in a wide variety of fields - computer science, engineering, design and more. With the accompaniment and leadership of our lecturers and mentors, and with the financial support we provided, the projects came a long way in their development.
