A business taster and idea competition

Entreprenuer for a day

Want to get a taste of life as a management student at Waikato, or want to learn what its like to be an entrepreneur/marketer?

The Entrepreneur for a Day Challenge is an exciting opportunity for individuals aged from 14 to 18 years old to experience a day in the life of a Waikato Management School student and entrepreneur,  and it's free.

You don't have to have any prior knowledge of business to take part - just come along and give it a go!

You'll work in small groups to develop a new product idea that has real market potential. You'll attend various workshops/lectures, and current management students will mentor you and suggest ways to make your product more appealing to customers. At the end of the day, you and your group will pitch your product idea to a panel of judges in our ‘Entrepreneur for a Day Final' – and there are some awesome prizes up for grabs!
