About this programme

New Zealand is a nation of small business owners – they contribute hugely to the economy and drive success. Small business is special. It occupies its own space in the corporate world and it provides opportunity for growth and learning. If you want to understand this sector better, work in this space or perhaps create your own small business, then you need to understand what drives it and how to contribute effectively.
