Since opening their office in Dannevirke just over a year ago, the Tararua Business Network has been extremely successful - assisting over 80 businesses; and in January this year, opening a satellite office in Pahiatua.
Louise Cooper, Business Administrator for the Business Network, says, “While we have supported numerous businesses in northern Tararua, we want to provide a more accessible service in the southern ward - we are aware of the time it takes to travel, and many small and medium business people in the district haven’t got the time to come to Dannevirke to see us. What we want to do is replicate what is working - so all the training, workshops and seminars we host will be available to all small and medium business in Tararua.”
The variety of services provided by the Business Network includes (but is not limited to): business planning; business mentoring; links to business capability assistance; links to research & development funding; training workshops and seminars; marketing; communication; biz clinics; networking activities and links to strategic partners. The Business Network also acts as a conduit for Council Regulatory Services.
If you own a business or are looking to start a new venture and would like to speak to the team at the Tararua Business Network, phone 06 374 4989 or email email@example.com to set up an appointment.
