An amazing ten days of intensive training in business start-up topics came go an end for a group of Porirua people on Friday 13th October. 30+ celebrated as they received their graduation certificates from Porirua Mayor Mike Tana. Each participant expressed delight about their learning experience and the sense of community that had been created around them. Their feedback suggests that this has been an incredibly formative experience for them and their businesses and business ideas.
The Porirua City Council along with Te Puni Kokiri and WREDA were principal sponsors of this inaugural PopUp Business School in Porirua. School NZ founder Tony Henderson-Newport assisted by Anna Watson and a Team of Business mentors presented the school in the Theatre at Te Rauparaha Stadium.
The PopUp Business School concept originated in the UK from where Tony has brought it after participating in Schools there. Plans are afoot to offer Schools throughout Aotearoa. Check with the Events Page on this website for information about the next School.
