A free workshop is coming to the West Coast for Māori businesses looking to move forward, flourish and succeed.
Pakihi is a series of workshops and mentoring designed to help Māori businesses. Crowe Horwath, in partnership with Te Wananga o Aotearoa, will be holding the first workshop on business innovation next month in Hokitika.
The three-hour workshop will provide participants with new skills, a growth plan, mentoring and connections with other business support organisations and networking with other Māori businesses.
The workshop is ideally suited for those who have been in business for two to five years and are looking to grow.
Participants will learn how to scan their industry for opportunities and challenges, apply a structured framework to generate innovative ideas, and prioritise their ideas for the best chance of success.
Jeffrey Broughton from Crowe Horwath says: “the content is great, but the real gold is seeing the whanaungatanga being created by the group.”
DWC business development manager Fiona Hill is keen to see Māori businesses on the West Coast take advantage of this opportunity and tap into the business support ecosystem available to them.
