Moving Horowhenua Forward
We believe that with the right knowledge, there is a lot that our community can do for ourselves. We believe that decisions should be informed by independent and reliable data, and that this data should be freely available to the community to access and utilise.
Multi-million-dollar decision making happens all the time, and as the Economic Development agency for Horowhenua, we inform and advocate for the economic wellbeing of the community. From writing proposal submissions to identifying investment opportunities, we’re working on the numbers our people need to forge ahead.
Contracted to provide Economic Development services for the Horowhenua community by the Horowhenua District Council, we’ve partnered with leading organisations like Infometrics NZ and Sense Partners to deliver the most up-to-date data and insights for businesses, organisations, and the community at large. This information is now available 24/7/365 on our website and includes the ability for users to generate their own custom reports and datasets.
Part of our role in delivering Economic Development services also includes connecting growing businesses with the right support, supporting our people to upskill and pursue fulfilling career paths, and making it easier for businesses to relocate to Horowhenua through our extensive business networks. Our efforts also extend beyond Horowhenua’s boundaries to support regional and intra-regional efforts to boost the competitiveness and attractiveness of New Zealand’s lower North Island.
