Helping your business to grow, innovate and make big things happen

Whether you’re wanting to start, grow or innovate your business, the Otago Chamber of Commerce is here to support you. We are funded by government to provide independent, confidential and quality advice to any business in Otago through the Regional Business Partner Network.

Our job is to provide you with the tools, resources, solutions and expert advice you need to take your business to where you need it to be. Working with us, you also get the added befit of our diverse networks and connections within Otago and beyond.

The Regional Business Partner (RBP) Network is designed to make it easier for New Zealand businesses to access support to innovate and grow, and is made up of 14 Regional Business Partners around the country. Funded by New Zealand Trade & Enterprise and Callaghan Innovation, we have Growth Advisors working every day with Otago businesses to help them grow.

Our Growth Advisors can:

  • Assess your business needs and help you plan your next steps
  • Connect you to the right networks and contacts
  • Find events, programmes and other opportunities suited to you and your product or service
  • Facilitate government funding and services on behalf of New Zealand Trade and Enterprise and Callaghan Innovation
