Venture Taranaki Trust exists to help Taranaki reach its potential. As Taranaki’s Regional Development agency we are here to boost the local economy. Our vision is to help businesses grow and prosper, and to grow the visitor industry and global brand of Taranaki.
Made up of integrated teams working in economic development, tourism, marketing and events, Venture Taranaki works one-on-one with individuals, businesses, small groups, media and industry sectors to grow the economic wellbeing of Taranaki.
Venture Taranaki is an initiative founded and principally funded by the New Plymouth District Council. The trust is also supported by the South Taranaki District Council, Stratford District Council, Taranaki Electricity Trust, TSB Community Trust, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, Callaghan Innovation, Business Mentors New Zealand and many other private sector organisations.
Our Economic Development team works with individuals, businesses, clusters and industries to grow the Taranaki region. The business section of the website outlines the business services, tools, information and resources available from Venture Taranaki to help grow your business. If you’re starting a business, growing a business or making a business run more effectively, then there is something here for you.
