The Pick:2017 – Northland’s business ideas competition.

About this image

Business event located at The Orchard Business & Event Hub

The Pick:2017 is a business ideas challenge for the local, everyday people of Northland.

We’re not asking you to invent the next Facebook or Xero, we just want to know what simple business ideas you have.

Any idea could take out this comp, but are you up to the challenge?

Submit your business idea in snap shot form; tell us why you and your business idea are unique and throughout the steps in this competition we could help you tick the business plan boxes and launch your very own business.

All entries are treated confidentially; we won’t steal your idea -but if you’re successful you’ll be shouting it to the world.
