The Regional Business Partner (RPB) network works with local businesses in their region to give advice, support and is the central access point for all funding and support by central and local government to help them grow their businesses.

The RBP encourages small-to-medium sized businesses to register with the network. There are no entry criteria, and it’s free to join.

It’s up to you how you use the network, and which services you want to access – there are no minimum requirements. So you’ve got nothing to lose by taking that first step!

When you join the network, They will put you in touch with the many other New Zealand organisations that support businesses like yours. The goal is to help you access the full spectrum of resources, tools, advice and support that’s available to you. Many of these are free of charge.
