Starting out

Starting a business can be a big challenge. We can assist by offering free advice, connecting you to local business people who can help and guiding you through any consents, permits or licences you’ll need.

Finding staff

At any stage of your business, your most valuable asset is your staff. We can help you find the right person for the job and link you to training options.

Finding the right business location

We can help you find the site that’s right for you, whether you're looking for a small retail space, an office or a large industrial site.

Free business research tools

Get insights into target markets and demographic data for free from Statistics New Zealand’s range of online tools.

Guiding you through consents

Our team can look at your specific business needs and talk to you about what you can expect during the consents process, and any permits you’ll require.
