Partnering with the public and private sectors, we exist to enhance the sustainable economic vitality of the region for now and into the future.
There are plenty of opportunities for businesses and individuals to get involved. So whether you’re looking to take your idea or project to the next level, put your tourism business in front of the right customers, or become part of a collaborative network of businesses, we can help you.
We are a council-controlled organisation owned by the Nelson City Council, who is also our core funding provider. Tasman District Council also contributes funding through an agreement of expectations and funding for economic development services with the Nelson City Council.
