Economic studies around the globe consistently link entrepreneurship with job creation, GDP growth and long term productivity increases. We want to foster a sustainable and vibrant economy that will ‘create a climate’ that will empower business people, workers and attract investment and visitors to our community.
We want to foster ‘home grown’ initiatives consistent with the culture, location and natural resources of the Kaipara overlaid with the realities of changing circumstances; we wish to create short feedback loops which allow for adaptation, innovation and improvement. We want to nurture local businesses and communities and attract new businesses to the area. What we want to see is a community that thrives on the rural lifestyle and the natural environment where cultural and environmental values are enhanced and embraced.
