Enterprising @ 50 Plus

Project Description and Objectives: The ‘Enterprising at 50plus’ Network is a group of people who, at 50 plus, have started or intend to start their own business.

This is a Network for people who, at mid life and beyond, may or may not be employed elsewhere, are self-starters, have an idea, have a product(s), or offer, or want to offer a service. They also want to create a stream of income and remain actively engaged with the community for the forseeable future – past the traditional ‘retirement’ age.

The Network provides the opportunity to meet others, pick up ideas, lessons learned and get support.

Why this project is of benefit to Kāpiti?NZ is part of the global ‘longevity’ revolution. In mid-life, for multiple reasons, many want to live life on their own terms.

Kapiti and the Horowhenua is a thriving part of our country’s economy and will have its share of Enterprising 50 plus businesses. We need to support them.
