Market Intel - TP Katene

In this episode of Market Intel I discuss the Maori Business Economy which is estimated to be worth $50bn to our economy with Maori investment manager for NZTE TP Katene.
TP is an Investment Manager, Māori Investment, for New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, assisting Māori companies to raise capital for international growth, working with Māori investors to identify suitable investment opportunities, and supporting the establishment of regional greenfield projects that mobilise Māori-owned assets and capital.

TP joined the Board of Ākina Foundation in October 2018. Ākina is focused on creating a more socially and environmentally impactful economy by working with enterprises, businesses, charities and government. This includes impact investment (co-investors in Impact Enterprise Fund) and social procurement, unlocking funding and trading opportunities to enable social enterprises to scale.

TP is also an associate director for Wakatū Inc, a Māori organization managing over $350 million worth of assets on behalf of 4,000 Māori tribal owners. He serves on the Group Board and Manaaki, a subsidiary board tasked with reinvesting profits in the cultural revitalization and social well-being of owners.

Previously TP spent 10 years working for New Zealand’s government, including within Parliament advising ministers on prominent policy issues, such as regional economic development, multimillion-dollar Māori treaty settlements, and fisheries management. He is also a registered business case practitioner with big 4 experience in in commercial strategy, market assessment, and business evaluation.
We cover aspects of what a Maori business is and what it means to be a Maori Business, the outlook post-COVID for both Maori and overall all SME business, scaling impact through having a commercial operation and what a business in the present can learn from those who came before us.
