If you’re looking to grow your business through innovation or research and development (R&D), a Venture Taranaki Business Advisor is your first step.

Venture Taranaki partners with Callaghan Innovation, a government agency supporting innovative New Zealand businesses, to co-fund and improve R&D activity in Taranaki. 
Whatever your innovation challenge, a Venture Taranaki Business Advisor can point you in the right direction.
