On Tuesday 15 October 2019, OAK Cologne from Otago Boys High School won the 2019 Otago Regional Final of the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme.
Thomas Geary (CEO) Ben Mason, Max Brown and Jackson Toms pitched their innovative solid cologne to a panel of judges at the Otago University Business School and came away smelling of roses. OAK Cologne competed against three other teams at the finals including another excellent Otago Boys’ High School team – the Samuel Hewson led EduCard NZ. OAK Cologne will now represent the Otago Region at the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise National Finals in Wellington in early December.
The Otago Boys’ High School Winners on the evening were:
OAK Cologne - Otago Regional Winners Best YES Business 2019

EduCard NZ - Otago Region Kiwibank Best Financial Performance 2019
EduCard NZ - Otago Region BB&S Leadership Award 2019 – Samuel Hewson (CEO)
Both OAK Cologne & EduCard NZ products are still available for purchase from their online stores if you will still like to support their businesses.
