MYOB began life as a startup in 1991 from a small home office with a big idea, and is passionate about supporting NZ’s startup entrepreneurs to develop the innovations, businesses and society of tomorrow.

The first 12 months of a startup can be both immensely exciting and joyful, as well as downright stressful and riddled with mistakes. MYOB has the tools, information and technology to get your startup business up and running.

MYOB has been backing Kiwi entrepreneurs for more than 25 years and is working with a range of partners to improve the breadth of our country’s startup ecosystem and developing products that support local entrepreneurs to scale up. We’re dedicated to being a thought leader in the startup space and you can see our latest report on the State of Aotearoa’s StartUps.

Come along to our free Employer Essentials Breakfasts throughout New Zealand where we help business owners understand the ins and outs of employing staff, and managing and motivating teams. Or get along to an MYOB sponsored Startup Grind meetup in your area to get inspired and meet like-minded entrepreneurs.

This year we also partnered with new startup accelerator Kōkiri to help Māori entrepreneurs turn their ideas into innovative start-up businesses. Aotearoa has no shortage of ideas – and entrepreneurial people with the potential to make those ideas successful – but the challenge is ensuring people can build on them.
