A showcase of exciting new business ventures was on display in Gisborne this week at the PopUp Business School Trade Show.

The PopUp Business School was a free two-week crash course, established to encourage and grow small local businesses.

The trade show was a wrap-up of the business training and gave the school attendees a chance to showcase their entrepreneurial ventures, as well as show the public and industry what they have learned so far.

They are a mix of startups and existing businesses. There are about 80 registrations for the school.

Activate Tairawhiti is the chief sponsor of PopUp Business School which, along with co-sponsors Te Puni Kokiri, Xero and the Ministry of Social Development, ensured the school was free to attend.

There were 37 exhibitors, ranging from spray tattoos, designers and life coaches, to first aid, art, videography and hospitality.

The trade show was well attended by the public and Gisborne Boys’ High School brought a class of business studies students through to get a taste of an industry event.
