Te Kora

Te Kora is a business programme for youth across Aotearoa and has recently been re-designed to deliver online. It is a way for rangatahi to connect with what it takes to bring an idea to life and ignite their inner entrepreneur. During the course of this workshop, rangatahi will learn tools, techniques and draw on personal attributes that can be used as an advantage in Te Ao Pakihi.

Each session is split into 2x 1 hour workshops that run on Wednesday and Thursday of every week in April beginning 15 & 16 April at 10:30am. No previous business knowledge required.

We want to inspire our Rangatahi!

Te Wero Pakihi is the next level from MWDI Te Kora. It’s an accelerated and advanced entrepreneurship development programme specifically for rangatahi who’ve already had a business learning experience.

We don’t just give them some great ideas in MWDI Te Kora and then hope for the best – we offer this next level, supported climb toward potential. Let’s keep them enthused, challenged, and inspired!

Over 5 intensive days, we’ll take everything to the next level:

  • To help rangatahi make business a reality
  • To encourage and create a pathway for rangatahi to study business at university
  • To continue to develop financial competency

Te Wero Pakihi runs for 5 days in Auckland at a local marae and various locations across the city. All accommodation, meals and transport are provided. It’s a full-on intensive that can change lives. Send us your rangatahi taonga.

We’ll take them places!

Te Wero Pakihi 2021

Te Wero Pakihi is a 5 day programme aimed at connecting tauira Māori with what it means to enact innovative thinking and intrepreneurship within an organisation. During these 5 days, rangatahi will learn how to understand a problem, identify a solution, research and test your idea and present back to a panel of judges.

New relationships are formed and a strong understanding of Te Ao Pakihi is developed. We wrap the week off with a celebratory dinner and graduation. Accomodation, travel & kai are sponsored by Māori Women’s Development Inc.

Te Wero Pakihi 2.0

MWDI supports rangatahi entrepreneurs to learn more about business. Te Wero Pakihi is one of the programmes we deliver that follows a real life experience of te ao pakihi. We are testing what it might look like if we bring together all our alumni from 2016 – 2019 to identify their own business idea and hold a showcase to present their service or product to the wider community.

Dates for Te Wero Pakihi 2.0 have now changed due to COVID. However, we will still run this programme. Stay tuned to find out more!

Hei ō ranga

In 2018, Māori Women’s Development Inc set off on a journey to connect with Wharekura to explore the potential to support the development of a Wharekura enterprise programme.

The programme is to be conceptualised and constructed from a Mātauranga Māori perspective based off of the experiences and feed-in of past and present wharekura tauira and kura kaupapa. Another goal is for it to be delivered in Te Reo Māori by young Māori facilitators, and supported by seed funding to help make the ideas that come of the programme – happen. This Kaupapa Maori programme will form the basis right across all programmes delivered by MWDI.
