New Faces: Nominate an Outstanding Young Kiwi Entrepreneur
During Global Entrepreneurship Week last November, Kiwi Connect profiled several leading female entrepreneurs who are making waves in New Zealand and abroad.
This year, we have our sights set on celebrating the New Faces of Entrepreneurship, in our amazing young people!
This weekend at Festival for the Future, we are launching a countrywide search to find five outstanding individuals who are creating positive value. We are seeking nominations for young entrepreneurs (aged up to 30) who are solving big problems and making an impact on their communities, in New Zealand and around the world.
The five young entrepreneurs who are selected will be interviewed and profiled on the Kiwi Connect blog and will feature in the New Faces video, which will be released during Global Entrepreneurship Week, 16 - 2 November 2015, when the world will be focused on all things entrepreneurship.
In addition, the successful nominations will be invited to present and pitch their venture at New Frontiers Festival in February 2016, to a group of Kiwi and international investors, entrepreneurs and potential collaborators.
With no shortage of inspiring young people, we have our work cut out for us, so please take a moment to nominate a young entrepreneur who has inspired you below!
Please help spread the word about this competition, and tweet about it using the hashtag #NewFaces
