Tū Pakihi


Tū Pakihi looks to support small-medium sized whānau owned businesses who are at start-up phase or within their first 18 months of trading. We support these businesses by providing a wrap-around support package which includes access to business mentors, financial and compliance support, Xero accounting training and support, back office resource support and networking opportunities.


We currently have 7 spaces available, which is best suited (at this point in time) to Auckland based business owners.  


Arohamai Applications are closed for 2019/20.

  • "Kia Ora Whanau, I just wanted to tono atu he mihi to those who have helped me in my small business startup with the help of Crowe Horwath and the team.


 Although, it's been tough here in Taupō to build up my client base and get regular customers, what I have learned is of so much value and I am very very grateful for the opportunity. I am so very thankful to be one of the participants in this programme.


Thank you to my iwi Ngati Whatua, I am very proud to be a part of such an iwi who are here to better their people. 


Tēnā koutou,

Teremoana Brockbank"
