New Zealanders from refugee backgrounds participating fully in New Zealand life
Refugees into Business
Refugees into Business (RiB) supports people from refugee backgrounds who want to become self employed, to establish a business or expand their business. The programme includes a RiB Advisory Panel made up of successful business people who provide feedback and mentoring.

- Clients meet with ChangeMakers to discuss business idea and complete a registration form.
Stage 2: Present your business or business idea
- Clients present their business idea or objective to the Advisory Panel. The panel will talk with each budding enterpreneur about their business or business idea and provide feedback.
Stage 3: Create a plan
- Clients work with a mentor to develop a business plan or to expand their business.
Stage 4: Mentoring and Support
- Clients receive on-going mentoring and support to develop their idea or business.
