Venture Taranaki Support
As the Regional Business Partner for the Taranaki region, Venture Taranaki is working with the Government to access $4 million in additional funding to ensure businesses are receiving practical advice and are supported as they experience impacts of COVID-19. This will see Venture Taranaki offer additional advisory support and information sessions/workshops. More information will be made available to you as these sessions are confirmed.
Venture Taranaki will also play a role in collecting regional information on issues and impacts, and sharing this with Government so that appropriate responses can be organised and delivered.
You can contact our advisory team for assistance at any time by completing the form below. If your enquiry is about the VT Professional Services Grant for Small-to-Medium Enterprises please use the link in the next section to register your interest.
Venture Taranaki Professional Services Grants for Small-Medium Enterprises
To support our region’s small-medium enterprises (SMEs) affected by the impacts of COVID-19, a $400 grant has been made available through Venture Taranaki, giving access to much-needed professional services advice and support.
Please note: this grant is not paid to the SME, it is paid directly to the service provider, and can only be used to assist with Covid-19 related matters.
SMEs that use one of our professional advice partners will receive an additional $400 of support, thanks to the partners’ own contribution of time; providing them with a total of up to $800 of professional services advice. SMEs that wish to use other service providers will still be eligible to access the $400 grant through Venture Taranaki.
The support enables Taranaki SMEs to access advice including legal, human resource management, financial and business continuity as they navigate the impacts of Covid-19.
This programme is made available with support from New Plymouth District Council, Stratford District Council and South Taranak District Council.
