Time's running out for Māori Innovation Challenge entries
The countdown is on for Aotearoa’s top emerging entrepreneurs to submit their ideas for the DigMyIdea Māori Innovation Challenge – an exciting new competition designed to inspire entrants to turn their innovative ideas into reality.   
DigMyIdea calls on entrants to submit a digital business idea that has the potential to go global. Ideas could be anything from an app to a web initiative, or ways to enhance or add digital elements to a more traditional business, product or even a process.
All DigMyIdea entries should outline: 
A digital business idea;
A focus on economic outcomes for Māori; and
Economic outcomes that may include opportunities for New Zealanders to earn incomes, create new business or export.
Ideas should be submitted through www.digmyidea.nz (which also has resources to help entrants familiarise themselves with the requirements of DigMyIdea and develop their digital business idea before they enter) by midnight on 18 October 2015.
A range of great prizes is on offer, including tailored business start-up services packages to the value of $10,000, technology packages and spot prizes from Dick Smith, and spot prizes from 2Degrees. 
Entries will be judged by a panel of experts, with the top individuals or teams in each category winning a place in DIGIwānanga, a weekend of workshops being held in Auckland in November to further develop and refine their ideas before overall winners are selected.
