Business Mentoring Programme

Want to export into the New Zealand market?

In 2020 PTI NZ launched bespoke business mentoring programme for micro, small and medium Pacific businesses to help them make the shift from being export capable to being export ready. 

What is export capable? 

It means that your business has the sort of goods that might be of interest to the New Zealand market, and you can produce quantities to export. 

What is export ready? 

Developing organisations considered to be export ready have management commitment, identifiable primary target markets; selected market entry strategies; a developed international marketing plan; and products to serve the NZ market. 

Not sure where to start? That’s where the PTI NZ Business Mentoring Programme can help. 

We have created a ten-week programme that covers off everything you need to get ready to export. It is a one-on-one business advisory service which is supplemented by group training. 

The programme will also help businesses identify which products would suit entering the NZ market. 

The programme aims to move you into becoming export ready by assisting you to create: 

  • an identifiable international marketing plan 
  • selected market entry strategies 
  • a developed international marketing plan.

PTI NZ has run the Business Mentoring Programme in Fiji and Tonga. Our third round opens the opportunity for three Samoan registered businesses to participate.

Expressions of Interest are open from 30 April – 14 May. Successful participants will be notified Friday 21 May 2021.

My mentors provide genuine support and open dialogue. Whilst leading me through the topics of the programme, they customise the discussions and take direction from myself on where the lead is in our weekly catch ups.
