Empowering indigenous businesses to go online

In this webinar we will speak with Maori business owners who know the importance of eCommerce and digital marketing strategies to sell their products online.

What's it all about?

Covid-19 has shone the light on the importance of indigenous knowledge.

The wisdom of our ancestors in protecting our lands, whanau and environment, has created more conscious aware consumers, thirsty for authentic, Maori products and services.  But to reach your customers and create repetitive sales, you must master the art of digital marketing and eCommerce platforms.

Listen to four Maori businesses who are working together to help more indigenous entrepreneurs make money online. 

Lily Stender from Tolaga Bay Innovation, Travis O’Keefe from Te Whare Hukahuka

Kaye Maree Dunn from Ka Hao Programme and Moana Ellis from 5000 Tribes.

Join us on zoom to learn more.
