New Zealand Business Week


Background to Rotary Involvement

NZBW was initiated by Rotary District 9940 and has been run annually for over 15 years. Rotary's involvement is extending throughout New Zealand. Rotary assists in screening candidates, and Rotary Clubs throughout NZ have been successful in organising sponsorships and may be able to subsidise travel costs.


The Rotary Club of Waikanae Sponsors Students to attend the New Zealand Business Week. (Applications should be made through the club - eligibility and conditions apply)

Who Takes Part?

This course is designed to give Y12 (sixth) and Y13 (seventh) form students a better understanding of and greater exposure to, the business community. There are two business weeks, one held at Palmerston North Boys High School in week one of the term two holidays and the other at Epsom in week two of the term two holiday.

The course dates are 4-9 July 2010 and 3-8 July 2011.


How Students are Sponsored

There are four ways Rotary clubs and other sponsors can help a student.

  • Day sponsorship. Donate $1,000 to gain naming rights for one day and the opportunity to promote your company's products. 
  • Student sponsorship. Donate $300 to fund a student's participation in NZBW. 
  • Student travel subsidy. As above - assistance with student travel.
  • Business Advisors. Donate approximately 20 hours of your time over the week to advise a student team.

Benefits of sponsoring NZBW

  • The opportunity for you to make a positive investment in our young people by giving students the chance to experience first hand the ups and downs of the business world.
  • As a business advisor you will be able to pass on your knowledge and experience to the next generation of business people and pit your own abilities aagainst the business simulation programme.
  • A chance to participate in a community project and gain acknowledgement of your contribution through the media and schools.
