Young Enterprise Kickstart

Get involved with the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) in Hawke's Bay, a programme that encourages innovation and provides foundation business skills to senior secondary school students. Students set up and run their own business, operating with real profit and loss over the school year.

Kickstart | Timata is the start of the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) Journey. Students spend the day coming up with ideas for their YES business. As a Speed Coach, you will support them for one hour to brainstorm their ideas and provide practical advice and encouragement. 

Joining us as a Speed Coach requires taking part in quick-fire rounds of mentoring where you’ll act as a sounding board for the student’s ideas in short feedback sessions.

You don’t need to be an experienced mentor to be a Speed Coach with students. All you need is an understanding of business, the ability to provide constructive feedback and feel comfortable working with students. 

Training will be provided prior to the session to ensure you are ready to meet our awesome students.

It’s the Speed Coaches that really make Kickstart | Tīmata special. The knowledge and expertise you share with our young people is invaluable.

Book now to be a Speed Coach for Hawke's Bay Kickstart | Tīmata 2022.

Events at Orange

Hawke’s Bay Chamber of Commerce will continue hosting events as we always have, however, we have introduced vaccination entry requirements under the NZ Government’s new COVID-19 Protection Framework.

Introducing Vaccine Pass requirements for events will provide certainty, allowing us to continue hosting events rather than needing to cancel or postpone due to the changing environment.

Under the Protection Framework, face coverings are recommended for events, and we will leave this up to your personal choice.

All attendees must scan in upon entry using the supplied QR Code.
