Inaugural Hatch Programme participants gather

Inaugural Hatch Programme participants gather

Six young, innovative and dynamic Pacific business teams have been selected to participate in the inaugural intake of the Hatch Youth Programme. Developed and delivered by the Pacific Business Trust, Hatch provides a combination of flexible tertiary education with real-world experience to support accelerated commercial growth to Pacific youth aged 16-26 with entrepreneurial aspirations through Massey University.

Hatch teams also have access to masterclasses led by business leaders, with the opportunity for individual assistance from the vast range of industry supporters.
The official launch of the Hatch Youth Programme is on Friday 15 December at a special event at Lei Café in Ponsonby from 8am, enabling all six teams to meet for the first time, along with the Hatch expert panel, sponsors and partners.

The six teams include:
• GO – a brand/social enterprise that looks at reducing barriers to giving for those who prefer to give tangible goods to those in need, increasing access to products for charitable organisations and non-profits.
• Mau Studios – a social design practice that creates holistic, systemic and human-centred responses to humanitarian issues.
• Meraki – a social enterprise offering Pasifika art and wellbeing workshop sessions to schools.
• OLelei – a business creating dairy-free alternatives to products for more to enjoy.
• Recoveroom – an innovative project aimed at treating the physical and mental aspects of recovery by opening recovery lounges.
• Sepora + Lia – a creative collaboration between two women creating fun and contemporary pieces of jewellery.

Kim Tuaine, CEO of the Pacific Business Trust, says the high calibre of applicants meant the initial intake of four teams needed to increase to six.
“Pacific Business Trust is excited to be working with Massey University to provide tangible pathways for young people to thrive, have a voice of their own and develop business networks that are mutually supportive,” she says.
