Free Breakfast Event for new Businesses in Southland

Tue 20 Mar 2018
7:00am - 9:00am

Building a successful business takes a lot of hard-work, self belief, passion and willingness to make things happen. But there are some other key essentials you’ll want to master if you really want to stand out from the crowd. Join us for a free breakfast event, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet other new business owners in the Southland region and hear from experts to help you build a successful business.

We’ll be joined by:

  • Prue Halstead - Investment Manager at Invest South
  • Jane Treadwell-Hoye - Co-Founder, ZeroPoint Ventures
  • Krissy Sadler-Bridge - MYOB NZ Marketing Manager
  • Michael Tither - Founder, The Plant Store founder

who will share their insights and savvy business know-how. They will cover areas such as the investment pathway - what do investors look for and what foundations should you put in place early on for later stage investments; what does it take to get a great idea off the ground; plus some areas to think about when starting to market your new business.

There’ll be coffee and breakfast provided too.

Register by 15th March to secure your spot.
