Our story

How the Wellington Pasifika Business Network started

The Wellington Pasifika Business Network started in 2014 with the passion of a small group identifying a significant gap in the market, particularly the lack of visibility of Pasifika businesses in the region.

The genuine commitment to bringing together the Pasifika business community was premised on the primary goal to encourage innovation, prosperity and growth of small business through quality network events and engagement whilst celebrating our successes and challenges in the world of business.
Number of Members

We are a open friendly group of Pasifika business professionals, we currently have 333 members and are still growing.
