Whether you are starting, growing or wanting to improve your business – we can connect you with the resources and training needed to build capability and achieve success

We offer confidential and independent business assessments to identify what support might be available for your business.

A business consultation is a great place to start for business owners at any stage of their journey. Our Business Growth Advisors can help to identify any gaps in your business, clarify thinking for you and your business objectives, provide feedback on your plans and identify what additional support, networks and funding may be available to you.  You can schedule a business consultation below.

As the Southland Regional Business Partner for Callaghan Innovation, we can connect your business with a range of information, services and funding.
This supports investment into your business’ research and development plans. 

Whether this focuses on developing new products or services or on wanting to involve students with your R&D activities, we can connect you with the information to support your innovation journey.  

It’s important to note that R&D funding is not available retrospectively so if you have an idea you would like to explore, make sure you get in touch with us early so you that you have access to all the information you need to make the most of the opportunity.

As the Regional Business Partner for Southland, we can connect your business with capability building opportunities.

This includes connecting you with vouchers to subsidise the cost of workshops, courses and coaching across a wide range of business areas. It’s a co-funding arrangement, which means your business must pay at least half the training costs.

Our Business Growth Advisors will work with you to identify the areas where your business could benefit from further capability training and then connect you with the services available.
