Thriving Entrepreneurs

To enhance creativity and innovation in Manukau, and see our people know and grow in their potential, Tukua supports creators, innovators and entrepreneurs to thrive!

It is an active community of innovators and entrepreneurs led by tikanga Maori and Pasifika values.  

 

Fostering connections, peer support, knowledge sharing and instilling a growth mindset not only enhances the individual but also their whanau and community.

Tukua is a journey of education and growth that supports and encourages our people to overcome limitations and realise their dreams.

During COVID Level 4 Lockdown, we developed the Survive and Thrive strategy, to support our crew to not only get through the lockdown, but come out the other side thriving.

This is based on practical financial and people management and holistic well-being.

CREATORS

Have a creative talent, and a desire to make it in this world using what you've got?

Being a creative is hard work in Aotearoa, and even harder for those of us with no money, and low financial literacy, behind us.

Tukua is for the creators.

INNOVATORS

Have a passion and a purpose?  A burning cause you are willing to fight for?  A dream to see a change?

Our world needs innovators, especially our Maori and Pasifika innovators.

Tukua is for the innovators

ENTREPRENEURS

Have a great idea you want to bring to life?  Know that you can help your whanau by building a business?

Learning to take what you have and turn it into a fully-fledged business isn't easy, easy to mess up, and hard to know where to start.

Tukua is for the entrepreneurs
