Over the summer on The Weekend we have been hearing from some of the young people on the Live The Dream accelerator programme.

Here are two more young people who plan to live their dream after the intensive 9 week course.

Henry Boyle is combining his interested in virtual reality technology, with his love of spending time suspended in float tanks, with warm epsom salt filled water.

Russell Golding, meanwhile, is a young entrepreneur with a completely different project on the go. He's working with Conscious Consumers, an organisation connecting consumers with businesses that share their values. The Wellington-born social enterprise has developed a free mobile app allowing users to find businesses near them that are making positive changes, learn about their practices, and gain loyalty rewards for spending with them.

In May 2016, they raised over $600,000 in equity from investors in only a few weeks. This year, they're aiming to further develop their technology, bringing consumers more purchasing choices and delivering tailored services to businesses wanting to gain better access to this steadily growing sector of the market.
