The Council has approved $20,000 per annum to be invested into a Business Growth Fund programme to support innovative and forward-looking business people intent on growing their organisations and creating jobs for the Coromandel.

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.

Develop and present a business case/plan

Your business plan should include the following:

Demonstrate tangible job growth.

Evidence as to why the business needs the funding.

Demonstrate how the funding will add value to existing activities.

Demonstrate how the funding will add value to the Coromandel.
