​​In partnership with Te Waka, Council has invested $165,000 for a new phone-based support service for local businesses.

Waikato Business Support provides advice and assistance to businesses affected by the COVID-19 crisis and focus on business recovery after the lockdown.

Targeting small to medium sized businesses, the support​ service will connect businesses with an experienced team of coordinators who are all business professionals themselves.

The team will provide support over phone or videoconference, connect Hamilton businesses to local and national government support resources and provide reassurance that help and resources are available to them.

Businesses are encouraged to call 07 929 4673 (WBZ HOPE) or visit waikatobusinesssupport.nz to register for a call back.
