The Pick:19 – The Business Bootcamp
The Pick:19 featured 12 weekly workshops, dividing focus between best practice for business basics, and inspiring business owners through exposure to thought leaders and innovators.
The aim was to make it accessible and enjoyable. We wanted the programme to be doable within four hours a week, at a time and location that suited the participant. It was also free to Northlanders.
Think of The Pick:19 as a bootcamp for business, or as professional development for our entrepreneurs, at no cost to them.
The Kaupapa of The Pick is to strengthen Northland’s economy by building business capability into entrepreneurs. The Pick has become part of what makes Northland an increasingly attractive place when deciding where to base a startup.
We know that most successful founders failed many times before they hit the big one.
The business idea someone’s working on right now might not be the one that succeeds but if we use that idea and make an investment in the capabilities of the person behind it, we increase the chances of future success and we strengthen the entrepreneurial talent of Northland.
