NZTE works with all kinds and sizes of businesses, from primary and consumer goods to e-commerce and SaaS businesses.

We offer three levels of support – Start, Build or Focus – based on a brief assessment. This assessment helps us understand your needs and where you are in your export journey.

NZTE’s support typically increases as your business progresses from one group to the next, though it is not necessary to move between groups.

  • workshops and events relevant to your needs.


Businesses that are committed to or demonstrating signs of international growth are “Build” customers.
