Ever since Louisa Cointreau was the "guiding spirit” of Cointreau when it began in the 1800s, the spirited firm has honoured and supported women around the world.
Its soirée spirit has spread to New Zealand with the Idealog/Cointreau Creative Kickstart competition this August.
Come along to hear finalists pitch their clever business ideas, worthy charity initiatives and interesting creative projects —in precisely 3 minutes and 33 seconds each –then vote with Idealog's Pitch Circus app to declare the winner.
The victor will take all with a $3000 prize pack including a $1,000 cash prize, one hour of mentorship to help bring the idea to life, a profile in Idealog magazine and on idealog.co.nz, and a unique prize from Cointreau.
Lisa King, co-founder of social enterprise Eat My Lunch, will join the line-up to discuss ‘good’ business, feeding hungry school kids and to reveal her plans for the business.
This all takes place at the Eat My Lunch headquarters, 5 Galatos Street, Auckland, on Thursday, 4 August. Cointreau cocktails and canapés will be on hand from 6pm and the event finishes up at 8.30pm.
Event tickets are on sale now at just $29 each.
