Te Puni Kōkiri leads Te Puni Kōkiri influences Te Puni Kōkiri invests in
Engagement with whānau to understand revenue generation activities and options. Economic policy work programmes led by other agencies, including small business and regional development. Opportunities for whānau enterprise, including microfinance and social procurement.
The shift we are seeking: Whānau enabled to grow their capability and access opportunities to develop sustainable enterprises

Our goals for the next four years are that:

  • Whānau enterprises and Māori entities are well connected to the full range of economic development opportunities;
  • Whānau revenue generation activities are creating sustainable Small and Medium-sized Enterprises;
  • Whānau enterprises and Māori entities are leveraging social procurement opportunities; and
  • Whānau enterprises and Māori entities champion a zero/low carbon economy.

The coming year’s focus will include partnering with other organisations to grow whānau enterprises. It will also involve influencing the Government’s procurement policy review to ensure that whānau enterprises are able to access opportunities. Sharing sustainable practices among Māori enterprise networks will support the overall move towards a zero or low carbon economy.
