Participants in this inspiring wānanga will embark on a transformative journey where they will discover how to research their business idea, strengthening it beyond theory and into actionable plans. Practical research skills will be shared to directly benefit participants' business ideas.

This weekend promises not only knowledge but also an opportunity to identify existing strengths and areas for improvement. The event aims to foster adaptability, encouraging attendees to seize opportunities, embrace change, and conquer challenges as they arise. Participants will also gain access to valuable tools and resources, including helpful worksheets and information for continued progress. "As we always say at Thrive: Knowledge is the key to unlocking your potential,'' emphasises Elise Goodge, the Programme and Partnerships Lead for Thrive Whanganui.

The core of the wānanga is empowerment. Attendees will be inspired to take ownership of their ideas and embrace leadership and self-determination in their entrepreneurial journey.
