Thrive Tairāwhiti

Thrive Tairāwhiti launched in July 2016 and brought together entrepreneurs interested in starting for-purpose, social enterprise businesses to improve social or environmental outcomes in the Tairāwhiti region.

Over the four-month programme, participants attended three two-day workshops that provided them with a supportive environment and the tools and knowledge to take charge of their own learning through action and reflection. It ended with a community expo on the 24th of November which celebrated the journey of the community leaders and social entrepreneurs who participated in the Thrive Tairāwhiti programme.
