Regional Business Partners Network
The Government has allocated additional funding to the Regional Business Partner Network to support New Zealand businesses and service providers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 Business Advisory Fund available through the RBP Network was limited and had been targeted at businesses seeking initial advice during Alert Levels 4-3. The current level of demand has met the allocation available.
There are still resources available through the network to help your business, including:
- RBP Growth Advisors in your region who can help you navigate to find the right support
- Free webinars tailored to specific business needs
- Business Mentoring Support via Business Mentors New Zealand
Other support available for businesses include:
COVID-19 Business Helpline for specific advice and access to Government business support
- North Island – 0800 500 362
- South Island – 0800 505 096
