Our Growing Great Entrepreneurs Programme run in collaboration with the Hawke’s Bay Chamber of Commerce continues to be successful with the fifth course seeing five participants completing and ‘pitching’ their business ideas to family, friends and business support providers on the evening of the 9th March 2022. This course allows participants to gain insight into how to grow their business from an idea to having a full business plan within a 6 week period. Following the completion of the course a pathway for further support is provided to the participants by way of mentoring with a business mentor. This allows them continued to support to continue to thrive and grow their business.
