Network NZ is New Zealand’s largest all-inclusive community of business owners, providing a supportive and encouraging platform for business owners to build meaningful connections and grow in a personal and professional way. 

We are passionate about helping people in business and enriching their lives. We believe this means that collectively, we all feel inspired and confident to grow and make the greatest impact in our industries and the world!

Let’s face it, our great NZ-based businesses are putting New Zealand on the map on the global stage. New Zealand is made up of over 500,000 small to medium-sized businesses, yet there are very few awards designed to recognise outstanding achievement in the SME arena. So, these awards are to celebrate you, as an SME business owner, who is doing great things. 

Any business can enter any award category that they feel you are eligible for, and you can enter as many categories as you like. They are accessible to anyone from anywhere in New Zealand and open to all industries.
