On Thursday 10 September, the Horowhenua New Zealand Trust and the Regional Business Partner Network hosted a workshop for Horowhenua businesses where they outlined what business support was available and how businesses could access the support they needed. The key points from this conversation are outlined below.
Looking to access support and build capability?
$100,000 of funding from the Regional Business Partner Network has been allocated to support businesses in Horowhenua.
The funding, which is administered by CEDA Business Growth Advisors on behalf of New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, can be used by eligible businesses to access support and build capability, and is a great opportunity for any business that wants to grow and add value to the community.
Who is it for?
Eligible small to medium businesses who are looking for the support needed to face current challenges and navigate a new way forward post-COVID-19.
It is also available for eligible small to medium businesses who are looking for support to increase employment opportunities, increase capabilities with existing staff or work to expand.
An eligible business must have 50 or fewer full time employees, be currently trading, and be privately owned.
What does the funding cover?
Depending on the needs of the business, this funding can be used to cover anything from HR, to business continuity, cash flow and finance management to strategy and digital capability - and will cover 100% of the funding needed.
There is also the opportunity for business managers to build their capability through management coaching and training services.
