Our Business GRANT

We are giving back to small business

See how and why One Oh Nine love to reinvest a portion of profits back into the small business community and learn about our annual #109ShopSmall business grant.

Our profits give back so small business can keep growing.

A big part of what we do revolves around our passion to get Kiwi businesses off the ground, which is why it’s important to us to invest 10% of our profits back into supporting small business through different initiatives.

Alongside this, we also deliver our “#109ShopSmall” annual business grant to a small biz owner in the community.

About our #109ShopSmall Business Grant

The grant includes:

  • $5,000 NZ cash to invest back into your biz

  • 4 x coaching sessions with Carol Glidden, our One Oh Nine founder (valued at $880)
  • Laptop/tablet* (valued at $800)

    *Model to be confirmed at time of grant

We open up our grant application process on the first of September (One Oh Nine of course!) just in time for Spring. We close it off each year and announce the recipient by first of December, hopefully bringing a little bit more joy (and less stress) to your festive season.

A panel of #109ShopSmall judges will select the winning business based on the following categories:

  • Community impact
  • Innovation
  • Growth potential
  • Competitive advantage
  • Creativity

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram, or join our mailing list and we will let you know once our #109ShopSmall annual business grant becomes available for application!
