Call for all young innovators and problem solvers – enter a team!

Mashup is a weekend event, delivering a unique learn-by-doing experience for youth aged 14 and up.

Mashup is designed to introduce and apply entrepreneurial and technical skills to solve problems in our community and equip youth with the tools and resources they need to make a positive and lasting impact in the future. Teams of four develop a product idea, create a business plan and build a prototype with the help of expert mentors over 48 hours.

Do you see you things in the world you want to change? Do you come up with new ideas but give up on them? Do you want to do something for your community or yourself but don’t know how to make it happen?

Mini Mashup is designed to get you started, and find people to help you along the way.

– What is Mini Mashup?

It is a day long workshop to help you come up with ideas for projects by exploring your passions and identifying problems in your community. It gives you a method to come up with problems worth solving, that you can then develop at Mashup or as part of a school or community group project.

Why be part of it?

Have no idea? This workshop is for you, you will find a good one

Have too many ideas? This workshop is for you, you will discover which one to select!

Have silly/crazy ideas? Great, this workshop is definitely for you, as no idea is too silly or crazy!

Mini-Mashup is to develop your ideation and innovation skills by giving you an opportunity to work on real challenges.

You will walk away having experience the skills to increase the relevance, scale and impact of your idea, before you take it to Mashup, Young Enterprise Scheme or any innovation challenge you want to enter or are leading.

Thanks to generous sponsors, this workshop is free to enter for youth in years 10 to 13 in Bay of Plenty schools.

Mashup
Dont’ just dream it, make it happen!
Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 March from 9:00am each day, Basestation 148 Durham Street Tauranga

HOW MASHUP WORKS

Mashup is open to all secondary school aged young people with an interest in solving problems that affect them and their community.

It’s your opportunity to form a team and to design a solution to this problem using technology, mashing Tech and Business! Mashup allows you and your friends to bring together all your different skills and interests, from business, computer, marketing, writing and design to work as a team in a safe and fun environment to build something that matters to you.

You will form one of 12 teams of 4 students from years 10, 11, 12 and 13 (you can include a junior student if they bring the idea!) and get mashing Tech and Business with expert mentors from the business, technology, marketing and sales world. You will be introduced to ICED, a business planning tool inspired by Lean Canvas. Your team will be stepped through a process which encourages critical thinking, innovation, teamwork and learn how to be rigorous about finding a sustainable solution to a problem you are passionate about.

Thanks to generous sponsors, this event is free to enter for young people age 14+
