Become a case study

Now’s your chance to help Kiwi businesses learn from your experiences — and get your brand in front of the 100,000 businesses that use business.govt.nz each week.

We are looking for business owners, sole traders or freelancers, in all sectors, who are willing to share their knowledge and insights on what has worked for them, and made their business a success. Along with what hasn’t worked and they had wished they had known.

 

About our case studies

Business.govt.nz is here to make it easier for Kiwi businesses to thrive today and tomorrow. We do this by creating resources that help businesses understand how to become more productive, sustainable, inclusive and comply with government.

We use real-life case studies to help businesses learn from other businesses like them, and inspire positive change. 

Who can apply to be a case study?

We’re looking for:

  • owners, managers or advisors of small businesses — those with fewer than 20 employees
  • all business types including companies, partnerships, sole traders and social enterprises
  • businesses of all ages — from start-ups to established businesses.

How does it work?

Business.govt.nz (together with its advisors and expert partners) manages the case study applications. We select the small businesses that best fit the criteria and goals of the resources or campaign.

Here’s how it works:

  • People sign up and share details about why their business would make a good case study.
  • Business.govt.nz reviews the case study applicants.
  • A shortlist is made based on the objectives of the campaign or content.
  • We’ll get in contact with shortlisted applications to check a few details and confirm selection. We will only be in touch with those who are shortlisted.
