The future of NZ Business

Last month, the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) Auckland Regional finals were held over five nights. The entrants were pitching to represent their region in the YES nationals held in Wellington in December. The events were also a celebration of YES businesses that had excelled in certain areas throughout the year such as marketing or sustainability.

The winners from each Auckland region were:

    • Central: youandi eyewear, St Cuthbert’s College
    • East: SLIC NZ, Pakuranga College
    • West: Ika Art, Henderson High School
    • South: Artist Inspired, Manurewa High School
    • North: Reused Shoes For You, Birkenhead College

The Chamber is the delivery partner of YES in Auckland. Congratulations to all the students – they’re the future of NZ business.
