Be connected. Be inspired.

Celebrate success, think fast, join people and be excellent in everything we do. That’s Ignite Wanaka !! In fact that's the Wanaka business community. Our vision is to empower the Wanaka business community through effective collaboration, inspiration, advocacy and recognition, using our three pillars of people, growth and support.

Our Ignite Wanaka members – or partners as we like to call them - are an innovative and diverse group, incorporating every aspect of the business sector. Local businesses and their teams, both small and large, are drawn to Wanaka’s innovative, entrepreneurial vibe where lifestyle meets opportunity.

As a member of the Otago HUB of National Chambers our partners are connected to thousands of other local businesses through the 32 strong New Zealand Chambers of Commerce network. In 2018, Ignite Wanaka signed an MOU with the Queenstown Chamber of Commerce, bringing even more connections and opportunities to our partners.

Membership is valid for 12 months from joining and is open to all businesses or enterprises of any size. From sole traders to large companies, the benefits of membership are shared

No matter what stage your business is at, having the right team behind you makes all the difference to how well, and how quickly, you succeed in achieving your objectives.

We’re here to help your business become more successful, faster, by offering networking, training, practical support and valuable connections.
