Branson’s business challenge: Impress me and reap rewards
Sir Richard Branson has issued a challenge to New Zealand businesses: Prove you have the mettle to go global – and win a six-figure boost for your company. In conjunction with BNZ, Virgin and Air New Zealand have put together a prize package worth more than $100,000 for one company with the “right stuff” – including time with Branson himself, a $100,000 cash prize, a BNZ business education scholarship, mentoring from Virgin and BNZ execs, and access to Virgin meeting rooms worldwide. Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia will also give the winning business a travel package and flights to London, New York and Geneva.
To be considered, entrepreneurs must demonstrate “creativity and innovation with the potential to go global”, aspiring to reach $50 million turnover within five years.
