Management Capability Fund

Management Capability Fund

If you operate an Otago business, you could be eligible to access support from the Management Capability Fund. This offers businesses up to 50% co-funded support for management coaching and training services.

Our Business Growth Advisors will work with you to identify the areas where your business could benefit from further management capability training and then connect you with the services available. 

To be eligible to participate in this scheme, your business must:

  • Be operating with 50 or fewer full-time equivalent employees
  • Be GST registered in New Zealand 
  • Be operating in a commercial environment, i.e., is currently trading  
  • Be privately owned or a Maori Trust or Incorporation under the Te Ture Whenua Maori Act 1993 or similar organisation managing Maori assets under multiple ownership 
  • Have developed an Action Plan with a Growth Advisor

The business should also: 

  • Have the potential and desire to grow 
  • Demonstrate commitment to improving management capability. Indicators of commitment include seeking advice, working through the assessment process and a willingness to co-fund and commit time to capability-building activities 
  • Have an identified gap in its capability that can be addressed through management capability building and training. 

Our Growth Advisors will be able to discuss the criteria for funding with you and will usually be able to confirm whether your business is eligible for Management Capability Funding.
