The YES Kickstart | Tīmata days are a great way for students to kick off The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme, In this workshop, students will learn about the YES programme, work on their business ideas, and get excited for the year! 

 

Kickstart is a great opportunity for students to meet their local Regional Coordinator, other YES students in their region, and business people from the community.  YES companies will participate in “speed coaching” with local volunteers where they’ll get feedback on their business idea.  Students will leave with the tools to ideate, connections to potential mentors, and hopefully an idea for their YES business!

 

There are 26 Kickstart | Tīmata sessions being held around the country in 2020 (details below), each one being organised by the YES Regional Coordinator.  Teachers, to register your students for the event, click on the relevant registration link below or email your YES Regional Coordinator.  If you would like to volunteer as a speed coach, please email the YES Regional Coordinator for your region by clicking their name below (*note, the speed coaching commitment is roughly 1.5 hours during the event).
