Great news as there is a new fund that became available for Auckland business’s on Thursday 21st October.

Your company may be able to access for advice, planning, support, consulting, training and coaching. We are still awaiting final details however they should be available shortly.


Businesses will be able to apply for up to $3000 worth of advice and planning support, and then receive up to $4,000 to implement that advice through the established Regional Business Partners programme.

Ministers have agreed a $60 million package for business advice and mental health support will be made available to help Auckland businesses through this transition period.

Small Business Minister Stuart Nash said the measures are designed to support Auckland businesses to deal with the uncertainties caused by the Delta outbreak.

“This will help build more resilient businesses, improve the ability to operate when COVID-19 restrictions are in place and position businesses better to seize future opportunities.

“The Regional Business Partners programme is a proven network of experienced advisors who can recommend tailored solutions to the issues faced by business owners.

“This will make a real difference in difficult times and ease some of the financial and wellbeing stresses faced by Auckland businesses under lockdown,” Stuart Nash said

This fund is brought to you by your Auckland Support Crew

With most of these business assistance programs the dollar figure is not guaranteed and your growth partner within the Auckland Unlimited system will consult with you and approve a certain amount.

The most important thing you need to get clear on is the outcomes you need to achieve, not how much funding you would like, which will mean the fun is distributed fairly to everyone in need.
