The business must either be a new business to the district or one that is not directly competing with other locally established companies.

Be a Small-Medium Sized Enterprise (SME) operating in a commercial environment.
Business owners and/or directors must be resident in New Zealand.

Your business plan should include the following:

Evidence as to why the business needs the funding.
