Northland is full of great business ideas!

The Pick is our business ideas competition that helps people who have an idea or want to develop an idea and develop it into a business model.

Entrants are supported over a 10-week programme by business experts to help them explore and hone their idea. In 2022 Pākihiroa and Whāriki joined us to tautoko Māori pakihi with a navigator to support them through the programme. Finalists are chosen to present their idea on Pitch Night where the overall winner is chosen by our panel of business experts.
