Network directory

As a business owner it’s valuable to learn from the experience of others – both within your industry and the wider business community. With 87 per cent of business said to come through referrals it’s also critically important to build a network of contacts that can help promote you and refer business your way.

Business networks also provide the opportunity to meet other businesswomen, find mentors to support you on your journey, be inspired by their success stories and learn from the mistakes of others. Business networks are also a great place to obtain information about specific aspects of running a business such as finding suppliers and tapping into new markets.

It’s also important to engage the professional services of specialist agencies such as trade and investment promotion agencies, NGOs and other government and multilateral agencies who provide technical assistance, training and development, grants and scholarships to support women in business across the Pacific.
