Ten students from secondary schools around the country  have been selected to take part in our Business Challenge programme to Singapore in January 2019. We've partnered with Young Enterprise and the New Zealand Chamber of Commerce Singapore to create a week-long experience that exposes young Kiwi entrepreneurs to the opportunities awaiting them outside of school and encourages business connections in Southeast Asia.

The students will learn about the culture and business community in Singapore and will visit both established and emerging companies. They will meet local entrepreneurs and key players in New Zealand trade and engage with Kiwi entrepreneurs operating offshore. They will also work with local Singaporean students on a thought-provoking business challenge.

The trip is an opportunity for these young entrepreneurs to extend their global business knowledge and their understanding of the Singapore trade environment.

The talented students selected to go to Singapore in January 2019 are:

  • Nicole Kawondera, Pukekohe High School
  • Niels Grosmann, Henderson High School (Auckland)
  • Patrick Roskam, Matamata College
  • Minnika Lawton-Rei, Freyberg High School (Palmerston North)
  • Zoe Rookes, Woodford House (Napier)
  • Jess Reiher, St. Mary’s College (Wellington)
  • Nicola Jury, Wa Ora Montessori (Wellington)
  • Logan Schokking, Nelson College
  • Max Benter-Lynch, Cashmere High School (Christchurch)
  • Caitlin Bradley, Roncalli College (Timaru)

New Zealand has a great track record for fresh thinking on the world stage, and the Business Challenge Programme to Southeast Asian countries helps to continue that by inspiring the next generation of young entrepreneurs.

Look out for updates from the group in Singapore in January 2019.
