We partner with Manaaki, a small business advisory service that provides tangible support to businesses across the country in the form of tools, training and grants, as well as supporting the wider community that Kiwi businesses are a part of.
2degrees Business powers Kōrero with Maanaki, giving businesses the opportunity to jump on a 15 minute call with a business expert and ask them anything, for free. In 2021, we gave away more than 70 hours of expert advice.
2degrees Business also offers free connectivity to participants of Manaaki’s Digital Doers programme, a 12-week online training course, followed by an 8 week internship, which provides job seekers with a pathway into employment by teaching them the digital skills many Kiwi businesses need. In 2021, 132 Doers were trained, with 52% of participants being Māori and Pasifika.
