Business Pitches

Southland Chamber of Commerce

In May 2018, seventeen Young Enterprise businesses pitched their business idea to local business leaders in both Invercargill and Wanaka.

Ideas included maker kits for kids, possum beanies, mental health web support, dog care kits, clothing, skateboard lessons, Wanaka tea towels, ‘Dusty Sunday’ jumpers, t-shirts, a supermarket app, fundraising for families affected by cancer, event planning and ‘6 in 1’ supermarket bags.

Colin Kennedy aka Dr Yes, Head of YES at Young Enterprise Trust said “students smashed it! The teams all brought a strong sense of both manaakitanga and kaitiakitanga. Awesome work everyone”

We look forward to watching these businesses develop and move into the marketing and sales phrase.
