Rotary Auckland supporting social enterprise through Kick-start Award 2017


The Rotary Club of Newmarket and the Ākina Foundation joined forces for a second year to kick-start Auckland region-based social enterprises by providing $10,000 in cash to a top venture.

Applications were open to all social enterprises, whether early-stage, operational or well-established. To qualify, applicants had to be a resident in the greater Auckland region – although the impact of the social enterprise may have been local, national or global.

Applicants had to include a short entry video, such as Resource Rescue’s video below.
