WHAT IS THE

TŪ AKE

We’ve created Tū Ake so that you have the focused support to:

 

  • bring ventures (whanau) together to build know-how/ skills and knowledge in an interactive and concentrated learning hub.
  • Take your venture ideas up several gears, moving from good ideas to viable and powerful investment propositions;

 

form a tight cohort of change agents within our community because we know that innovation development needs networks and wider supports

WHO ELSE IS COMING

Tu Ake is the first step in a dedicated 12-month journey programme for 30 ventures/initiatives supported by Waikato Tainui.

 

This is your chance to ‘step up’.

 

Tu Ake participants have been selected from an open call out. You’ll be surrounded by whanau who are on the same journey as you, chasing their vision, distilling their plan, focusing their energy, crafting the dream and creating a team.

 

There will be a mix of social enterprises and commercial entities those in Idea development phase; develop whānau ideas into viable business plan, concept testing & development and those in the Innovation development phase; executing their business plan, set up for growth, scale and reach.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN

Over the weekend, teams will work with coaches, mentors and professional advisors to test and develop the key aspects of the venture including: financial model, market testing, social/cultural impact, competitor landscape and pitching.

 

  • Mentoring will be provided by professional coaches who have a track record working with our people to help them get their ideas and innovations to the next level.

 

  • Professional services will be available from lawyers, accountants, communications experts and more.

 

  • Inspirational speakers will include people who have done remarkable things, telling their story and being honest about the bruises they got along the way.
