Five University of Waikato alumni launched Seed Waikato last year, a social enterprise designed to help young people in the Waikato thrive.
Inspired by the energy and enthusiasm in New Zealand’s youngest city, the group aspires to create opportunities for young people to connect through online channels, workshop sessions and monthly storytelling events.
Seed Waikato Chair Gemma Slack says the concept of Seed was born in April 2016 when she met co-founder Ryan O’Connor at the Rotary Young Leadership Awards. The pair questioned what was missing from young culture and decided to launch a new initiative to inspire and engage 18-30-year-olds in the Waikato.
