Small and medium sized businesses are the backbone of our economy.

When small and medium businesses thrive, so too do our families and our communities.

When we talk about business, at WE, we liken it to ancestral voyaging and wayfinding. It’s important that you pull the waka out of the water and check for leaks and when it’s back in the water we need to ensure that it’s heading in the right direction and that all crew are paddling in unison.

Since WE opened our doors in 2011, we have been learning and navigating our own waka as well as coaching and mentoring other business owners in theirs. We’ve navigated through many choppy waters, made wrong turns, had to stop and check our position and we’ve sailed on in search for paradise, or in business terms, to fulfill our companies vision and purpose. Along our journey we have uncovered some key factors that are the biggest contributors to business success. Our business development services target these key contributors and have aided in the growth and success of many businesses

We hear the statistics all of the time – most businesses fail within the first five years. WE’s goal is to change those dismal statistics by learning; what’s important to you, what condition your business is in and where you want to take it so we can help you navigate your business to the next level.

WE Business Advisory Services

 

We’re proud to be advisors, coaches and strategists, here to help cultivate authentic businesses. We’re building healthy businesses, run by people who have enough support, resources and knowledge to run great companies and organisations. We know that by helping business owners, we’ll also contribute to the well being of shareholders and employees which flows on to their families and communities. 

We choose to weave kaupapa Māori and indigenous insight into our practice. This simply means we incorporate the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values of Māori and indigenous traditions into our services to help businesses grow.  We also focus on sustainable practice, corporate responsibility,  the environment, economy and society around us. Ultimately we want to change dismal statistics and create brighter futures, and we can see innovative small businesses being a key part of that future. 

“[The Business Plan] gave me a clear understanding of the values of my business and target market. Was able to set clear goals for my business growth in an easy business plan format.”

“I always leave with more than I come with”

“I am very satisfied with the Business Accelerator program. It allows you to have an external view of our activities. There is a regular return due to the period of one meeting per week, this allows us to update our business step by step. The We accounting team is very responsive and responds to the all request.”

The WE Accelerator Programme has been instrumental in the start up of our business. Between mid January and now (end of March) we have achieved more than we achieved in the whole of last year. The team from WE have been beyond amazing with a huge wealth of knowledge around business start up and accounting, and Kathie from ATEED has really assisted us in setting our long term goals and getting us in contact with some key people who should be able to help us along the journey.

WE KNOW BUSINESS!

Mahi Kotahitanga (Working in Unity)

 

Me mahi tahi tātou mō te oranga o te katoa

We should work together for the wellbeing of everyone

 

 

Being in business can be a lonely journey! BUT, it doesn’t have to be.

Something the Accelerator Program taught us is the importance of kotahitanga (unity and collaboration). That’s why we are bringing back group coaching sessions in our Mahi Kotahitanga Program!

Join our award winning advisory team on a journey of collaboration and transformation. The beauty of this program is that not only do you learn from WE, you learn from your peers (tuakana-teina).
