Delivered in Auckland by The Auckland Business Chamber

Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) Students

The Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) offers students like you in Years 12 and 13, the opportunity to explore your entrepreneurial spirit and gain first-hand experience in the world of startups. With over 1600 participants in Auckland alone, YES provides a platform to turn your ideas into tangible products or services. 

The programme focuses on essential business skills such as teamwork, communication, problem-solving, negotiation, and decision-making. Mentors are available to guide and support you throughout your journey, and a calendar of free events provides you with networking and learning opportunities. 

Through its four YES challenges, students can participate in a competition while setting up their own company, creating and selling real products or services, and retaining their profits. All while gaining NCEA Achievement Standard credits! 

Join us on this exciting journey of growth and discovery.
