IT youth seek motivator

Twenty-five year-old IT entrepreneur Daniel Williams is seeking a 'motivator' to help create the IT leaders of tomorrow.

IT entrepreneur Daniel Williams is seeking a "motivator" to help create the IT leaders of tomorrow.

Last year the 25-year-old west Aucklander formed NETwork (New Enterprise Today), which aimed to find 20 young business leaders to coach 40 businesses headed by IT entrepreneurs.

Williams has his own webhosting company, Albany-based Webdrive, whose growth he says was hampered by a lack of business advice. Thus, a year ago, he began seeking mentors like him, who could help other young entrepreneurs (see Young entrepreneur seeks 20 IT youthful mentors).

By the New Year 100 people had registered, but despite initial enthusiasm, Williams says people did not do what they said they would.

He still has details of 30 potential business mentors and 40 "young guys who wanted help".

Williams says he did what he could, but since he has his own business to run, the project "fell by the wayside".

"It's still sitting there waiting to happen. I would like to see it come to fruition. I would be fully behind the project if I could find someone. NETwork needs like an organiser with enthusiasm to motivate others, someone who would probably be an experienced business person," he says.
