Empower Te Rangapikikōtuku

29th Aug 2022

We had an awesome two days at the Empower Te Rangapikikōtuku thanks to Marlborough Chamber of Commerce and all the sponsors and contributors. Shout out to Ngati Gaming for the korero about tech hubs!

We were super impressed with our Kaikōura rangatahi and their tech skills - a couple even managed to win themselves a mobile phone!

It's also opened our eyes a bit to the many possibilities of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and the opportunities in gaming and creative design technology. We are keen to pull together anyone who is keen to jump on board with thinking about how we build opportunities for our rangatahi, (and the rest of us) in this tech space - there's so much happening and it's pretty exciting.

So if you have either tech skills, or are just interested, get in touch with us to talk more about how we can create a community tech hub.

Side Hustle

29th Jun 2022

What an amazing group of young business people we heard from tonight! Our young entrepreneurs pitched their business ideas to Tony Henderson-Newport from Rebel Business School Aotearoa - wow, these guys have a huge amount of creativity and talent!

All of these businesses are winners but the recipient of our prize tonight of $500 seed funding is Rochelle Clark for her business - The Tasty Tams - selling tamarillo plants!

A massive thank you to Tony, to the Ministry of Youth Development, The Prince's Trust NZ, our local entrepreneurs who presented at the Beach House a few months ago at the start of this journey - Gus, Mātangi, Corrina and Lauren - and to Wero Wayfinding for their fostering of these young people's entrepreneurial skills.
