He Kai Kei Aku Ringa Rangatahi Business Challenge

A fun and interactive 3-day introduction to enterprise for year 10 and 11 Māori students.


Young Enterprise is excited to support New Zealand rangatahi with the He kai kei aku ringa Business Challenge.


He Kai Kei Aku Ringa supports promising economic development initiatives by, for and with Māori. Young Enterprise runs a series of Business Challenges for rangatahi that develop entrepreneurial skills and attitudes among the students and connects them with their local business community. Students will develop work-ready skills, learn about enterprise and business, and connect with local Māori entrepreneurs who are sharing their talents and skills across Aotearoa and the world.
