Sign up for the Regional Business Partners Network to access support services for your business! Registration is FREE and takes about 10 minutes. Have your NZBN handy…

Support services in Wellington Region are provided by WellingtonNZ (The Regional Economic Development Agency) on behalf of MBIE.

Consumers are inundated with ads, so it’s vital that your ad catches the eye and immediately grabs interest. You could do this with a headline or slogan (such as VW’s “Drivers Wanted” campaign), color or layout (Target’s new colorful, simple ads are a testimony to this) or illustration (such as the Red Bull characters or Zoloft’s depressed ball and his ladybug friend).  All good advertising copy is comprised of the same basic elements.

How can WellingtonNZ help my business?
Business Needs Analysis

When you have registered with the Network, a Business Growth Manager will meet with you to carry out a confidential ‘discovery session’. This is an open and honest conversation about your business challenges and goals, as well as your ability to commit to make the desired changes. Your Business Growth Manager will act as your coach, making recommendations and connecting you with support appropriate to your needs.

Capability Funding

You can access co-funding to subsidise the cost of business specialists in areas relevant to you. This could include upskilling in business and financial planning, education on how to raise venture capital, develop marketing strategies or significantly expand your business offering.


Be connected with a number of FREE business resources and programmes, including templates, online courses, or start-up support.
