Christopher Bean Work As Mentor In Residence @ University of Auckland (NZ)

The primary focus of my work as a mentor in residence at the University of Auckland in New Zealand is helping young people unleash the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship.

After 30 years of firsthand experience and knowledge as a successful serial entrepreneur, I aspire to help and support staff members and students at the University of Auckland through mentorship.

I’m excited to help each student and budding new entrepreneur build the innovative, entrepreneurial mindset, and capabilities they need to transform the world and unleash their true potential.

About Mentor in Residence

Mentor in Residence offers the opportunity to have a conversation with a seasoned entrepreneur. Someone who’s been through the highs and lows of creating a start-up, and who can help you with your venture. Many start-ups experience similar challenges, making it all the more important to seek advice and support.




A large part of my work at The University of Auckland (NZ), focuses on:

  • Mentorship to up-and-coming entrepreneurs, start-up owners, founders.
  • Supporting entrepreneurs through their entrepreneurial journey, and providing them with advise and support through my 30-years of experience as a serial entrepreneur.
