To qualify as a Kiwi Business Hero, each entrant must show how they meet four criteria:

  • the perseverance that took them through difficult times as the business got on its feet
  • the value their business brings to the local community through client testimonials or other means
  • the contribution the business makes to the local economy, whether directly or indirectly by supporting other New Zealand businesses, and
  • the charity done for the future of the business’s local community. This could be ongoing charity work, event organisation or community work with a long term positive effect.
