If you’re looking to boost your enterprise by stepping up your skillset, a Venture Taranaki Enterprise Advisor can point you in the right direction. 

If you need enterprise training, then the personalised enterprise action plan that Venture Taranaki will create for you will include a range of training options available either here in the region or elsewhere, from short courses to one-on-one coaching programmes. You will then have the opportunity to meet with the training providers directly before committing to a course of action. Your Enterprise Advisor will be there to help you weigh up your options, and will follow up with you to ensure you are getting the help you need to grow your business. 

RBP Capability Development Fund

A Venture Taranaki Enterprise Advisor may also be able to provide you with a voucher to cover up to 50% of the cost of your training, through the RBP Capability Development Fund.

Venture Taranaki is part of the nationwide Regional Business Partner Network, which includes Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment (MBIE) and Callaghan Innovation. The Capability Development Fund can be put towards a wide range of enterprise training, including enterprise planning, marketing, finance, enterprise systems, staff management, governance, sustainability, lean business, enterprise operations and export development.

In order to be considered for voucher funding, your enterprise will need to meet these basic criteria: 

•  Operating with 50 or fewer FTEs. 
•  Be GST registered in New Zealand. 
•  Currently trading in a commercial environment. .
•  Be privately owned or a Māori trust or incorporation or similar organisation managing Māori assets under multiple ownership. 
•  Be able to demonstrate both willingness and capacity to grow. 
•  Have undergone a business overview with a Venture Taranaki Enterprise Advisor. 

Your Enterprise Advisor will be able to talk you through the criteria for voucher funding, and will generally be able to confirm whether your enterprise is eligible right from the outset, so you can plan your training budget.
