Business Plan: Turbocharging your company's growth

We New Zealanders are an entrepreneurial lot, but the path to SME stardom isn't always an easy one.

Our new section, Business Plan, launches today as a practical toolbox for business people packed with case studies, how-tos, and expert advice for growing your business.

It's the place to go for advice on starting a business, running a business – marketing, exporting, IP, finance, innovation, banking and all that guff – or, at the other end of it, selling up.

Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
