Young Enterprise Scheme

25 Nov Young Enterprise Scheme

On Tuesday 2nd of November, three Year 13 businesses competing in the annual Young Enterprise Competition pitched their ideas in the East Auckland Regional Finals. Pitching remotely this year proved a challenge for the teams, but they all delivered impressive pitches followed up by some outstanding answers to the judges questions.

These students’ efforts need to be commended this year, especially given the disruptions around lockdown and trying to develop a start-up business. Regardless of the environment, these teams still managed to: zoom with prestigious stakeholders including government ministries, secure grants from nationally recognised brands to the tune of $5000, and even start smaller side hustles to raise additional capital during these trying times. Seven Seas even had the Human Rights/Race Relations Commissioner, Meng Foon, send a video message endorsing their product and it’s suitability for New Zealand!

Tiki Tour Games took out 2nd in the Competition with Seven Seas and Flash Learning picking up an Excellence award each.
