Young Enterprise Scheme Dragon's Den Finale

5 June 2014 | Dragon's Den Finale

UCOL will host the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme Dragon's Den final at the Atrium, 5 June, 2014. The event kicks off promptly at 5:30 pm, corner of King and Princess Street, Palmerston North.

12 teams representing 6 secondary schools within the Manawatu and Wanganui will vie for $1,000 cash prize as well as a $2,500 accounting package from Morrison Creed.

Judges Mike West, Lyn McCurdy and Jason Driscole will listen to a 5 minute pitch from each team and the team with the most magic up their sleeve will walk away with the cash and accounting package.

Teams from Freyberg High School, Palmerston North Girls High, Palmerston North Boys High, Wanganui Collegiate, Nga Tawa and U-Skills (UCOL) have been working hard over the first term and a half, with help from local business mentors and experts at BCC (www.thebcc.co.nz).

Each and every year, the Lion Foundation's Young Enterprise Scheme works with close to 50,000 students nationally. This year, the Manawatu/Wanganui region has worked with 28 teams, consisting of over 100 students.

This event is organized by the BCC and is sponsored and supported by 12 businesses including UCOL, Morrison Creed, Wanganui District Council, Palmerston North District Council, Tararua District Council, Fitzherbert Rowe, Media Works' MoreFM, ANZ, Massey University, AJ Park and Brendan Lodge Photography.
