Event Details

Programming Māori Potential (PMP) is a digital start-up accelerator using hackathon and design thinking methodologies, focusing on solving wicked problems using digital technology as a solution. PMP uses a hybrid of methods to deliver a unique initiative to our rangatahi such as an elongated Startup Weekend delivered over 6 weeks, and a 2.5-day Wānanga/Hackathon, which ends with a pitch to potential investors. As well as that, PMP will also provide up to 4 weeks post-Hackathon advisory support to assist our rangatahi with taking their potential solution/prototype/product to market.
 PMP aims to support rangatahi Māori (targeted at 17-19yrs) through the design thinking and lean start-up process. Throughout the 10 weeks, rangatahi will explore entrepreneurship and 21st-century skills such as problem-solving whilst gaining exposure to digital technology and connecting rubbing shoulders with industry leaders, mentors, and entrepreneurs.
