OPENING FEB 2021

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.
