Rotorua rangatahi shown entrepreneurial path
More than 130 students from six central Bay of Plenty high schools have spent the morning hearing how to start their own business.
The focus of the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme enterprise day at Toi Ohomai’s Mokoia campus in Rotorua was building teams and developing real-life business ideas.
Scheme head Leah MacDonell says the creation stage is crucial, as the student-led teams learn the process of starting a business, researching their respective industry, developing the product and launching their idea into the market.
Regional coordinator Nikolasa Biasiny-Tule says mentors are drawn from the local business community, and they are able to give constructive feedback on the student ideas.
