Young enterprisers create business solutions to global challenges

June 21, 2012 Comments off

 

 

About sixty bright young secondary students from throughout New Zealand met in Auckland to compete in the Young Enterprise Trust competition 2012. The competition was based at Massey University Albany. However, the students were allocated into a dozen teams that were dispersed in several sponsor-mentor premises throughout the city.

The following videos illustrates the journey of one team, Team Unitec, hosted on Unitec Institute of Technology‘s Mount Albert campus. Team Unitec presents their response to two challenges:

  • “Create a new venture business plan using a wood-based product sourced from New Zealand that can be used to create a valuable business through solving human issues in Indonesia“.
  • Create a new venture that responds to the increasing issue of youth unemployment.

Innovation and change in New Zealand’s dairy industry: insights from history

May 8, 2012 Comments off

Unitec associate professor of business innovation and entrepreneurship, Peter Mellalieu, reveals his idiosyncratic passion for derelict and repurposed dairy factories. Peter argues that if we attempt to foresee the possible futures we might experience over the next ten years, then  we need to examine at least the previous 40 years of history. Interviewer Karen McCarthy also discusses with Tim Mackle the impending changes to the Dairy Industry Restructuring Act, and Dairy NZ’s new research and development initiatives to improve sustainable farm practice through reducing nutrient and waste runoff into river waters.
