Business and Financial Education

Resource Development and Programme Management


Aotahi Limited is a Māori business education company which specialises in the development and management of educational programmes in the areas of small business management and personal finance. It was established in 2004 to provide practical and relevant tertiary education programmes and resources with an indigenous focus for the benefit of small business owners in Aotearoa. Since then, the company has expanded its focus to include personal finance and iwi development.

The company currently has a team of 10 full-time employees and operates from its office on the main street of Te Kuiti (King Country). One director, Miriana Stephens, is based in Nelson, while the other director, Naomi Hughes, looks after operations in Te Kuiti. Team members travel throughout the country to work with clients as required.

Although our major clients to date have been tertiary institutions and iwi organisations, we are interested in working with any entity which has a commitment to improving the economic, social, and cultural wellbeing of individuals, groups, and communities throughout Aotearoa, as well as the wellbeing of our people overseas. We welcome enquiries about our products and services.
