Entrepreneurs in Action 2023

For the eighth year, the Foundation's Leadership Network is mentoring a team at the Young Enterprise Trust event, Entrepreneurs in Action.

We are looking for up to three members to mentor a team at this year’s event, taking place 30 June to 2 July in Wellington. If you are based outside of Wellington, flights and accommodation will be covered by the Foundation.

This is an opportunity for New Zealand-based Leadership Network members to give back and grow their coaching and mentoring skills.

About Entrepreneurs in Action

Young Enterprise Trust provides a range of enterprise and financial literacy resources to New Zealand schools, with the aim of developing students with an enterprising attitude.  

The YET Entrepreneurs in Action event is a national event for 78 students from around the country. Held over two days, 10 teams are given two, 24-hour business challenges. Each team is mentored by a company or organisation.

Feedback from network member mentors:

Hannah Duder: "I am so glad I said yes to being a mentor for EIA 2022. Overall, the three days left me feeling invigorated, motivated and hopeful for our next generation of leaders. "
Anna Zam: "Being able to give back to the network through "paying it forward" (Oh alright, we still snagged bragging rights given our team's win over the weekend!) was something which enticed me to join as a mentor for EIA 2022."

Applications close 8 May
