At Venture Taranaki, we understand it can be daunting to start up a new business, so we are there for all those taking the plunge.

Our dedicated support services will help you shape up a bright idea and guide you through the process of starting up and growing a new business.

Startup and New Business Clinic

Our Startup and New Business Clinics offer a confidential, free, one-on-one 45-minute consultation with our experienced Business Advisor. You will have the chance to ask any business questions, ranging from planning to sales and marketing.

These clinics are best suited to those at the idea stage, not commercially trading, not GST registered, a Sole Trader, those without a business plan, or with an annual turnover of less than $100K.


We are powering up Taranaki’s entrepreneurship ecosystem through our PowerUp programme, where you can grow your idea, connect with other entrepreneurs and tell your story.
