The YES journey

Year 12 and 13 students create their own unique product or service, form a YES business at the start of the school year, and take it to market. Throughout the year, they attend events that mirror the process start-up businesses go through – including developing business and marketing plans, receiving guidance and mentoring from business people, and presenting their ideas to a live audience at the Dragon’s Den events. Find out how you can get involved by volunteering as a YES mentor.

Auckland Business Chamber delivers YES across the Auckland region on behalf of the Young Enterprise Trust.
