Thinking of starting a new business?

May 30th, 2017

Over the last few months I’ve been approached by 2 or 3 people thinking of starting up their 1st business & it can be quite a daunting thing!

Where to go, what information do you need, when is the right time to start, how much money is needed, the questions keep on going.

My comment is always, do your due diligence, do your planning at a practical level, take good advice, but there is never a ‘right time’!

So where to go for information?   The following links may help if you’re thinking of starting your own business, or know someone who is:

Business.govt website – getting started


Business Mentors in New Zealand is a not for profit organisation, dedicated to supporting small business through volunteer mentors (I’m one of those mentors in Hawkes Bay)

If you want some more information, you’ll find plenty of it here


At a local level, there is always the Hawkes Bay Business Hub

Here you can find support across a number of agencies, all under one roof
