Twelve students from secondary schools around the country have been selected to take part in our Business Challenge programme to Vietnam in April 2019. We've partnered with Young Enterprise 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 Vietnam 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 Vietnamese 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 Vietnam trade environment.
The talented students selected to go to Vietnam in April 2019 are:
- Louise Bremnar, Otumoetai High School (Tauranga)
- Tulsi Lathia, Rangi Ruru High School (Christchurch)
- Nyah Holland, Wa Ora Montessori (Wellington)
- Kieran Gordon-McKee, Northcote College (Auckland)
- Hamish Turner, Marlborough College (Blenheim)
- Juliette Hauter, St. Mary's College (Auckland)
- Logan Rea, Westlake Boys' High School
- Lucie Kendall, St. Mary's College (Auckland)
- Brooke Moore, Tauhara College (Taupo)
- Olivia Moore, Tauhara College (Taupo)
- Moesha Puke, Hamilton Girls' High School
- Detroit Hale, Hastings Boys' High School
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.
