Ka aha matou?
Pakihi Ora hosts networking events, workshops and conferences, offering pakihi Māori opportunities to learn from industry experts and peers. Access to knowledge and best practices can empower pakihi māori to make informed decisions and stay competitive in their respective markets.
Being part of a business network creates a sense a hāpori of support for pakihi māori SMEs. They can seek advice, mentorship, and support from experienced entrepreneurs and industry veterans, which can be invaluable in overcoming challenges and making informed decisions.
Through the integration of Mātauranga Māori and Te Reo Māori, our events and workshops empower pakihi māori to thrive not only in the business world but also in preserving and promoting their unique cultural heritage. Pakihi māori gain a holistic understanding and deeper appreciation of our cultural heritage, language, and traditions. This inclusivity enables pakihi to share their experiences, challenges, and successes in a culturally enriched environment.
Moreover, Mātauranga Māori guides the way we approach business practices, encouraging sustainable and ethical methodologies that respect the environment and uphold the principles of kaitiakitanga (guardianship). Embracing these principles enhances the resilience and long-term success of pakihi māori, fostering a sense of pride and cultural identity within their ventures.
