Our Enterprise Programme

Our Introduction to Enterprise and Enterprise Programme have been engineered to respond to New Zealand’s unique economic, social, and cultural context and to empower young New Zealanders with an entrepreneurial mindset and enterprise skills.

We work alongside rangatahi aged 18-30 to grow their ability and vision to ‘make a living’ and value their own contribution to a thriving Aotearoa economy for themselves, their whānau, and their communities. 

Our Enterprise Programme has four distinct elements:

Training

Intensive and immersive short courses either face-to-face or online, infusing self-awareness and technical skills with design thinking, business literacy, marketing and product development, and delivered in a modular way to respond to the needs of local young people. 

Mentoring

We’re building a network of experienced business experts to voluntarily offer both long-term one-on-one support and short-burst specialist advice for our alumni as they embark on their business development journeys.

Networking

Our growing network of Enterprise graduates are benefiting from linking with each other and discovering new opportunities through their on-going connection with The Prince’s Trust Aotearoa.

Funding

We are launching He Kākano seed grants in 2022 to young entrepreneurs linked with our business mentors and ready to test their business idea; launch their venture; or expand their reach.
