At Xero we believe it’s better to support one cause well than spread ourselves too thin trying to support various different charities and community projects.
We are proud to sponsor the Young Enterprise Trust which is a not-for-profit organization aiming to create entrepreneurial students with a “can do” attitude. Programs run from primary through to secondary school, and encourage students to be enterprise capable and financially literate. By equipping young people with these skills, the Trust seeks to make a difference to the lives of the individual, their family and society.
While based in New Zealand, the trust has peer programs in markets where Xero has a growing presence, such as Australia, the UK and the USA. Students participating in the scheme get to use Xero to set up and run their company at no cost.
Helping to provide young people with the tools and support to create new, innovative businesses (like Xero), is we think a great way to give something back.
