KEI TE AHA MATOU (WHAT DO WE DO)?
Poutama has a proven track record of working successfully with Maori businesses to help them grow. Established in 1988, our unique and effective style of operation takes account of the varied needs of Maori businesses that are often whanau run and frequently rurally based.
Poutama assists existing businesses to consolidate and grow their businesses and to set them on a path of sustainability. Poutama works across all sectors and industries that Maori businesses are involved in. This includes but is not limited to; the service sectors, food & beverage, tourism, information technology and primary industries.
The New Zealand business landscape is dominated by micro--small businesses. Research shows that often these businesses do not grow and ultimately fail. By working with businesses to help them consolidate their activities and achieve growth and sustainability, Poutama aims to move businesses from the micro stage to the small-medium stage, and for some onto the big stage. Poutama seeks to get businesses through the difficult steps of developing and growing a business, and to ensure that as many as possible become self-sustaining and self-determining.
