About SMART Start Business (SSB)
Support for Migrants and Refugees to Start Business is a social enterprise dedicated to provides top quality support for new Kiwis who want to become entrepreneurs in their new home. We believe that people are different and they have different needs when it comes to setting up their business. SSB tailors its services to the client’s, and the client business’s unique needs and financial position.
Many Kiwis who came to NZ as migrants or from refugee backgrounds are very talented and skillful, they are also hard workers, highly self-motivated and innovative, they brought many years of experience to New Zealand and can greatly contribute to the growth and development of our beautiful country.
Migrants and refugees face many obstacles when they endeavor to set up new business. Obstacles in terms of language, networks and understanding the NZ regulations, laws, market and economy. These obstacles are on the top of the hardships and difficulties faced by ordinary kiwis who want to start a business. One of our unique services is working with clients in their own language through trained interpreters. People in general and new entrepreneurs, in particular, feels more confident and relaxed when they work with someone who is not only able to understand their language but also their culture and mindset. Part of our services is to find the right people from the client’s home country and provide them with the right training to be able to deliver the right services. Please check our Company Profile 2017 for more details.
