First, you need to find out if you qualify for funding support. You can contact us through the form below and we'll be able to give you a better idea of whether you're eligible for funding. However, funding support is solely at RBPN advisor discretion, so the next step is to register with an RBPN advisor and do an interview assessment. We can support you with this by explaining the process.
To be eligible a business must be:
Operating with 50 or less full-time employees.
Be GST registered in New Zealand.
Operating in a commercial environment – i.e. is currently trading.
Be privately owned or a Māori Trust or Incorporation under the Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993 or similar organisation managing Māori assets under multiple ownership.
Have undergone assessment by a Regional Business Partner.
Demonstrate commitment to improving management capability. Indicators of commitment include the fact they have sought advice, have worked through the assessment process and are willing to co-fund capability building activities and make the required time commitment.
Have an identified gap in its capability that can be addressed through management capability building and training.
Additionally, if you are exporting, have export potential or part of an export supply chain, this can help your application positively!
Once you’ve registered, you will be able to select Pow Wow Media as a Service Provider and request a quote from us.
Step 4: Proposal Preparation
After receiving the request, Pow Wow Media will discuss the best course of action as per our previous meeting to meet your wants and needs. We’ll then develop a proposal for Activate Tāmaki Makaurau.
Step 5: Request Proposal Assessment
Once you’ve had a look over the proposal, request an assessment for approval by an Activate Tāmaki Makaurau assessor. Then we wait for approval. If the proposal is not immediately approved, you will be given instructions on what further information is required to have it approved.
Step 6: Approval Received
Once approved by Activate Tāmaki Makaurau, both parties will be sent a contract outlining the agreement. Once signed, we can begin to implement the services listed within the proposal.
ADDITIONAL NOTE: To receive this grant, all services must begin within the first month of applying and all services must be completed within three months from the date of the approval. That means you could access a total of 3 months worth of digital marketing services with us, potentially for free.
*This funding is limited and Activate Tāmaki Makaurau will make decisions based on their own meetings and eligibility criteria.
