Business Trust Marlborough - Brian Dawson

Business Trust Marlborough is here to assist businesses of all types – start-ups as well as existing businesses.

We offer free, confidential advice on any aspect of your business, or your business idea. Our well-qualified Client Advisor will provide information and advice to help your business succeed. We provide a free one on one consultation for your business to help you analyse the challenges you are facing and create an action plan.

Regular Events

  • BizBreak - join us for morning tea on the third Thursday of the month, 9.30am - 10.30am, to network over coffee and muffins.
  • Kick Start Your Business
  • Lunch & Learn

Business Mentors

We also act as the Mentor Manager for Business Mentors NZ which is a nationwide network of volunteer business mentors. Locally we have a pool of over 20 very talented, experienced mentors who regularly volunteer their time to assist new and existing businesses.  Prior to becoming a mentor all applicants are screened and interviewed.  They also are required to attend an Accreditation Training Day and sign a Mentor Agreement Contract which covers potential issues such as conflicts of interest or confidentiality. 

Business Mentor Programmes:

  • The Start Up Mentor Programme:  this provides six months of accelerated mentoring for people who have a new business idea or are looking for help in starting a new business.
  • The General Mentor Programme:  which is 12 months of confidential one-on-one advice for owners of small and medium-sized businesses that are currently trading and who want to grow or need help to solve specific business challenges.
  • Community Mentors:  is for not for profit organisations, social enterprise groups, charities (both registered and un-registered) and NGOs based in New Zealand. 

So, whether you are wanting to start a business or to grow your business, remember that you don't have to go it alone. Support is available.

Located in the Blenheim CBD at Level 2, 3 Main Street (in with Lifetime, above Rebel Sports), this service is backed by a diverse range of experienced local business people, appointed as Trustees, who all want to see Marlborough businesses thrive.
