The Regional Business Partners Network funding pipeline has been allocated, but CEDA’s Business Growth Advisors are still able to provide support in the areas outlined below:

  • Connecting you with an experienced Business Mentor through Business Mentors New Zealand for 12 months of guidance and support. Business Mentors come with specific skills and are matched depending on your needs.
  • Facilitating funding through Callaghan Innovation for Research and Development (R&D), including project and student grants.
  • Providing support for new business ideas through the Starting a Business workshops.
  • Sharing relevant and up to date information, tools and resources to support your business to navigate a way forward. Including information on the Cash Flow Loan Scheme.
