Kia ora koutou,
Following the huge success of the recent delegation of F&B leaders and entrepreneurs to Southeast Asia last month, we are excited to share yet another incredible opportunity for young Kiwi health and beauty entrepreneurs and business leaders. The Asia New Zealand Foundation Te Whītau Tūhono is offering up to ten young leaders the chance to visit Indonesia in a week-long programme.
The upcoming trip, scheduled from 8-15 October 2023, is designed to give participants a deep understanding of the health and beauty sector in Indonesia.
Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to attend Cosmobeaute 2023 – Indonesia’s largest beauty trade exhibition.
This is a great opportunity for young emerging Māori business leaders in the health and beauty sector to grow their awareness and knowledge of doing business in the region, deepen connections with key industry representatives and entrepreneurs, and grow their confidence as entrepreneurs.
If you meet the below criteria, we strongly encourage you to take up this rare opportunity:
- Under 40 years of age
- Is a New Zealand citizen
- Is an entrepreneur or business leader (at CEO or senior management level), at a New Zealand health and beauty business
- Is a confident public speaker, willing to and interested in engaging with entrepreneurs from other countries and exploring international business opportunities
This haerenga is part of the Young Business Leaders Initiative (YBLI), which aims to facilitate trade while building connections between business leaders and entrepreneurs from Aotearoa and Southeast Asia.
