What we do

Accelerate Business Programme

Taupo Application starting Feb 2019 | Rotorua Expression of Interest | South Waikato Expression of Interest

A six-month programme focused on tripling the business’ growth rate.

Accelerate helps good businesses become great. We provide business owners with the skills and mindset to work on their business to achieve faster growth.

Business owners participate in a unique blend of business training with professionally facilitated coaching focused on sales, leadership, brand, planning, finance and developing a growth mind-set.

The programme is unique as the new behaviours and skills learnt in the training are enforced and followed up with one-on-one business coaching sessions.

Accelerate is for owners of established, medium size businesses that are profitable and scalable with an ambition to grow regionally, nationally or even internationally. Suited for companies with a minimum annual turnover of $500k and 5+ staff.

More than 30 business owners have graduated from our Accelerate programme. 92% of participants identified new growth opportunities, or had the motivation or knowledge to progress existing growth opportunities.

Graduating businesses have launched new products and services, accelerated expansion plans into other towns and implemented new leadership initiatives with staff.
