Young Enterprise Scheme Hall Of Talent

Five To Be Inducted Into Young Enterprise Scheme Hall Of Talent

Five Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) graduates have been selected as the inaugural laureates to be inducted into the YES Hall of Talent this Friday in Wellington.

Stefan Lepionka (Charlie's Juice, Auckland), Laura McDonough (Impero Innovations, Auckland), Michael Clist (Canary Data Solutions, Auckland), Emily Tuffin (Go Learn Online, Wellington) and Rebecca Wilson (Maison de Femme, Dunedin) have been selected from 190 YES alumni.

The laureates will be inducted at a ceremony in Wellington this Friday, 9 May 2003, 12:30-2:00pm at the Copthorne Hotel Plimmer Towers.

Enterprise New Zealand Trust Executive Director, Ken Baker says that the YES Hall of Talent, supported by Industry New Zealand and ANZ, has been established to provide an opportunity for ENZT and sponsors to recognise and celebrate the achievements of young New Zealander business entrepreneurs.

"These laureates have created their own innovative companies, and the Hall of Talent celebrates both their success and the role YES has played in developing their entrepreneurial skills. We hope recognising these laureates will encourage more young New Zealanders to consider business as a career", said Mr Baker.

Industry New Zealand, the primary sponsor, has supported the YES Hall of Talent through its Enterprise Culture and Skills Activities Fund. The purpose of the fund is to foster the development of enterprise skills, attitudes and behaviour as widely as possible. Projects supported by the fund contribute to a culture and environment that recognises, reinforces, and encourages entrepreneurial activity and business success.
