Soda is a Hamilton-based business growth ecosystem that helps businesses grow. We connect entrepreneurs, business owners and key decision makers with the right people, tools, resources and programmes to accelerate business growth.
We work with a wide spectrum of businesses and stages of maturity – from individuals simply wishing to be self-employed; or who may be growing an established domestic business; to those looking to innovate, export and go global. Talk to us if you are:
• A Waikato based business with less than 50 employees keen to grow or innovate
• An ambitious business owner or key decision maker (Waikato based)
• A Kiwi entrepreneur with global ambition
• A regional council or EDA that needs assistance supporting local businesses
As the Waikato Regional Business Partner (RBP), we help business owners and key managers identify needs and opportunities to grow their business, providing them with Government support and funding from the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and Callaghan Innovation.
Our specialist Business Growth Advisors can provide advice, information, referrals and connections to businesses seeking support for their growth journey. We can help your business grow by connecting you with:
• Capability development funding and training – you could be funded up to 50% of training costs (capped at $5,000 per year)
