What people are saying

Having a business mentor has really helped me on many different fronts, and I have really appreciated his ideas & feedback; and certainly implemented most of his ideas so far.
Peter Ogilvie, Plus4 Insurance Solutions

We reached out to the Nelson Tasman Business Trust and Sarah and her team have been so welcoming, warm, helpful and supportive. They have provided us with excellent networking opportunities and connected us with other experienced individuals which has enabled us to grow and learn much faster than we would of otherwise. We would recommend anyone in any stage of business to reach out and meet them, and participate in the Nelson Tasman Business Trust community.
