Coromandel Businesses Encouraged to Aim for a ‘Flying Start’

Coromandel Businesses Encouraged to Aim for a ‘Flying Start’.

Coromandel MP Scott Simpson is encouraging small businesses around the region to have a crack at winning $65,000 worth of prizes.

Scott Simpson MP says ‘The ANZ Flying Start Business Plan Competition is a fantastic opportunity for small businesses to get a financial boost, or to get a great idea off the ground.’

Mr Simpson says ‘All businesses need a good solid plan and anyone wanting to enter the competition just needs to submit theirs.’

‘We have many innovative businesses in the Coromandel and I want to see them grow. Growing businesses mean more jobs. More jobs mean sustainable communities. And that’s good for our entire region.’

Applicants need to demonstrate that their idea is innovative, viable and geared for growth.

Entries are open until 12 August 2014. There’s more information at http://www.business.govt.nz/business-plan-competition
