National business support initiatives
NZ is rallying to support our local business community through online platforms and resources for all types of business owners
Manaaki is a support network of business experts uplifting the mana of small businesses by helping them navigate COVID-19 and empower everyone to come out of this stronger, together.
WellingtonNZ has partnered with Visa Wellington On a Plate to launch At Yours, a new comprehensive online directory of food businesses in Wellington city, Hutt Valley, Porirua, Kāpiti and Wairarapa, that are providing meals and other products via contactless delivery or click and collect during Levels 3 and 2.
Support Local Digital Toolkit
New Zealand's largest advertising agency, Stanley St, has created a free "Support Local" toolkit for businesses to provide them with digital and printable images to support their business in getting the word out to customers around shopping and supporting local businesses. This includes images for social media, as well as logos to add to paper and takeaway products.
This site, managed by NZTE, is designed to help match businesses who need extra resources to those who can provide those resources.
The marketplace is organised into sector/solution forums such as freight, temporary storage, supplies, business services and staff availability, and will adapt to show more categories as required.
Swiftly is an initiative to get business back up and running at Level 3 and beyond. It’s a free, lightweight store that companies can set up for online click and collect in minutes. Get your free store up and running today.
SOS Business has been set up for hospitality businesses, where customers can buy vouchers for their favourite eateries and coffee shops, to use when these businesses are back up-and-running.
