HASANZ notification of Regional Partner Network - A potential member opportunity

As some of you will be aware the Government is expanding the business helplines.  In addition, they have increased funding to the Regional Partner Network to support business during Covid-19.  Essentially this is a list of providers that can help businesses especially around marketing, legal, finance, etc.   Up until recently the advice was subsided 50:50 (ie, the company had to put up half the now. 


Govt has now may the service free to business (up to $5k).  Plus has been expanded the advice offered to include ‘’Health and Wellness’’.  So potentially an opportunity for H&S people to become registered.


I talked with the NZTE person managing the scheme.  In a nutshell:

  • There is opportunity
  • A large number of business are wanting to access services and therefore the funds are limited
  • Providers should contact their local growth advisor (ie, Venture Taranaki, ATEED).  These regional organisations contact with businesses.
