“Ooku nei hoa kei ngaa toopito o te ao” – Kiingi Tawhiao
At Waikato-Tainui we want to support more of our whanau and marae in businesses because we know it creates independence and enables mana motuhake. If you’re a business owner or wanting to get into business take a look at what support we can offer you.
Pakihi is business and we’ve created Puna Whakatupu - our framework, that enables our tribal members and marae to succeed in business by providing tools, workshops and assistance in navigating the business world. On this page, you’ll find details about what support is available for you no matter what stage you’re at in business.
Waikato-Tainui are very proud to introduce Puna Pakihi, our very own business e-directory that exclusively lists the businesses owned by Waikato-Tainui tribal members. We use Puna Pakihi to promote these businesses to our networks and as a tool for everyone to find and purchase products and services. Puna Pakihi is an opportunity for you to access the wealth of talent and skills or people have to offer.
