Starting up a business is challenging, especially for young entrepreneurs with little business experience and limited finances. We are hugely grateful for the support of the professionals and businesses who helped us to get going. This support is absolutely fundamental for new companies like ours with limited resources. The time, energy and effort from these companies is valued greatly and is extremely important, and we would like to thank these people for their generosity, kindness and their helpfulness in assisting us to start Flatless as we couldn’t have done it without you.

Many thanks to the University of Waikato for providing the seed funding that helped start up Flatless.
Finally, thank you so much to everyone from the Young Enterprise Scheme, especially our teacher Andrea Panther, for providing the opportunity to start this business, pitch our product and keep Flatless up and running!
