  1. I attended the presentation and I highly recommend this aid support to any SME how wish to grow, but need support. The portal is a place you can access technical help to assist you to succeed. I spoke with Apeo who is an excellent help. Personally I feel that NZ Aid comes with no strings attached. Thank you to the organisers Andrew from StratCom, and Steve from BLP who is the Activities Director. I encourage all SME to check out the portal.
