Support Networks For Small Medium Ethnic Businesses

Multicultural New Zealand positions to facilitate support networks and mentors for small medium ethnic businesses


On Wednesday, 28th of May, Multicultural New Zealand inaugurated its newly formed Multicultural NZ Business Advisory Board, chaired by Anthony Wenceslaus, to govern the Multicultural NZ Business Advisory Council. The formation of the Multicultural New ZealandBusiness Advisory Council is part of the outcome of the Small Medium Ethnic Enterprises business forum held in Auckland in April.

According to Tayo Agunlejika, the Executive Director of Multicultural New Zealand, the choice of Mr. Wenceslaus could not have come at a better time for the organisation, “Wenceslaus wanted a year break on laying down office as Chair of INZBC. He now looks forward to working with our business advisory board, which comprises of very committed and talented professionals drawn from different professions and associations. This is an exciting opportunity to build from inception and to work throughout New Zealand with different ethnicities to help small and medium businesses grow. Mr. Wenceslaus’ portfolio as chair of the Multicultural NZ Business Advisory Board entails working with various financial institutions, government departments/agencies, business associations, chambers of commerce and business communities at large to strengthen small and medium ethnic businesses in New Zealand.”

In its first year, the Multicultural New Zealand Business Advisory Council will work towards:

1. Encouraging cultural diversity in New Zealand businesses.

2. Supporting SMEEs with information on New Zealand business culture, environment,

and encourage good business practices.

3. Encouraging ethnic communities to support SMEEs and SMEEs to support ethnic
communities and multicultural projects.
