Social entrepreneur and founder of Increase Clothing

Noa became a father at 16 year's old, initially too scared to tell his parents because of the stigma around teenage parents. He's working to change these stereotypes. 

As a scholarship recipient to Festival for the Future, Noa was inspired by the CEO of Thankyou and their social enterprise that sells products and channels the profits into helping end extreme poverty. Noa set up the clothing company Increase, which sells t-shirts and tops that raise money to give other teenage parents the opportunity to further their leadership development by attending things like Outward Bound and Festival for the Future.

Since his TedX Talk in Wellington, Noa has spoken to more than 2,000 people in schools and leadership conventions.
