Entrepreneurship supports talented and successful businesspeople to invest in themselves and their communities. To own their destiny and build sustainable organisations that create the real change today’s world needs. It does this through the power of tino rangatiratanga (self-determination) and financial backing.
For Māori and Pasifika entrepreneurs, equal access to opportunity is especially important.
Enabling this is what we do at Height.
It’s why we support the New Zealand Government’s recent $26M investment in social procurement, specifically targeted at growing Māori-owned businesses. It’s also why we’re working closely with Te Puni Kōkiri Progressive Procurement. This programme is designed to reduce the barriers to Māori engaging with government procurement processes to build their business capability and make government agency buying practices more inclusive.
As part of our work with Te Puni Kōkiri, we’re mentoring and sharing our manaaki to help Māori pitch, win and generate a sustainable profit from government and corporate contracts. Our inspiring entrepreneurs include Aroha Nepia, Director of Eco Pristine, Wiremu Gray, Director of Evolution Scaffolding and Te Arahi Maipi, CEO of Mahi Tahi.
Creating real change in today’s complex world can be a challenge for any of us. What support do you need to become more enterprising? How could that impact your business and the world in meaningful ways?
