For some years now the Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce has been involved, as a sponsor and supporter, in The Business New Zealand Challenge (formerly know as SELL). This initiative is designed to introduce students to the challenges and excitement of a business environment, in a condensed three day business planning exercise. The programme is run by the Young Enterprise Trust and is complimentary to the popular Young Enterprise Scheme, which has been around for many years. This year The Business New Zealand Challenge will be staged at Kaikoura High School, Papanui High School, Timaru Boys’ High School, Rangiora High School, Mt Hutt, Linwood College, Avonside Girls and St Bedes College.

We think connecting the students of today with the business opportunities of tomorrow is a critical part of growing New Zealand.
