Auckland Business Support


On Friday 22 October 2021, the Government announced an economic support package for businesses affected by higher alert levels, as the country transitions to the new COVID-19 Protection Framework.

Activate Tāmaki Makaurau includes a package for Auckland businesses, specifically for the areas of Business Advice and Implementation Grants.

Fuel Media Ltd is registered to provide you with Business Advice and Implementation Support, with Activate Tāmaki Makaurau.

Fuel Media is registered and qualified to deliver the following support and services:

Business Advice (up to $3000.00 + GST)

Eligible businesses can apply to work with Fuel Media and gain expert advice, strategy and planning. Together we will address your most immediate challenges, like changing target markets and developing fresh marketing strategies, creating a digital media plan, or overall business strategy.

This advice will lead to a plan to overcome challenges and/or identify opportunities and map out the scope of the work required to achieve the plan.

  • Business Planning, Strategy, and Continuity Advice (e.g. new opportunities/markets)
  • Marketing Advice (e.g. marketing strategies, value proposition development)
  • Digital Marketing Advice (e.g. social strategy, website strategy)
  • Digital Enablement Advice (e.g. client interaction strategy)

Implementation Grant (up to $4000.00 + GST)

Eligible businesses can apply for an Implementation Grant to work with  Fuel Media to help implement an existing business plan or to execute a plan based on Business Advice received. This grant offers you some funding to begin putting your business plan into action, in one of the available service categories.

  • Implementation of Business Strategies and Continuity Plan (e.g. Product Development)
  • Implementation of Marketing Plan (e.g. Brand and Identity Development)
  • Implementation of Digital Marketing Plan (e.g. Website Design, Development or Upgrades. Social Media Management)
