Welcome to the Bay’s Most Active Network for Small Business Owners
Small Business Tauranga (SBT) is a Tauranga Chamber of Commerce network that connects, supports and celebrates the small businesses (under 10 staff) of the region. We make it easy for business owners to join in and be part of a vibrant and supportive local business community.
Our fortnightly breakfast networking events are a great way to make new contacts and to increase the profile of your small business.
Our monthly 90-minute “Fully Charged” training sessions get straight to the point of what you need-to-know on essential small business topics.
If you’re new to town, or looking for ways to grow your small business, we can connect you to the people you need to know, introduce you to other networks and sources of assistance – and give you a steer on what’s happening locally.
It’s never been easier to join in, and to get massive benefits from belonging to a network group that’s tailored just for you.
You can participate in Small Business Tauranga in a number of ways:
- Subscribe to our eNews
- Follow us on Social Media (Facebook and LinkedIn)
- Join Us as an Individual Member for a small annual fee of $99 (+gst), and get instant access to member rates, some great introductory deals and regular member-to-member savings.
- Join the Chamber as a Full Business Member, and enjoy much more – including free attendance at the Chamber’s popular monthly Business After 5 events, and member rates for you and your staff for SBT and other Chamber network groups. Full Business Memberships start from $235 (+gst).
- Attend one of our networking or training events and pay the non-member rate (for that event). This is a great option if you’re new to town or just want to try us out.
