The BizDojo is pleased to announce the formal signing of our first major corporate alliance, with ANZ Bank.
Phil, Nick and Jonah from BizDojo first began casual discussions with ANZ way back in June last year. What began over a few coffees slowly percolated into an understanding of how the two organisations might work together more closely, resulting in a new partnership agreement. ANZ comes on board as BizDojo’s highest level sponsor.
Campbell Wright, Head of Business Sales and Execution for Business Banking, was the internal champion for the partnership within ANZ. Campbell writes:
“We’re really excited about our new partnership with the BizDojo. ANZ is committed to helping small business be successful, and are looking forward to enhancing this with our new relationship. The BizDojo is an innovative environment with some really smart people that we will work alongside to deliver some great banking solutions for businesses.”
Phil Williams, BizDojo Partner, helped craft the partnership from the Dojo end.
“We’re stoked to announce this strong association with ANZ. Not only are they Australasia’s powerhouse bank, but they have huge ambitions around innovative product and service… something we share. Best of all, Campbell and the rest of the senior team at ANZ are interested in new thinking, and believe in the great potential the Dojo environment provides. We’re looking forward to doing some great work with them.”
ANZ’s sponsorship funding will be applied to BizDojo’s core co-working and innovation environments, as well as our ongoing plans for expansion and world domination.
BizDojo will be delivering insight and innovation work for ANZ. Also in planning is a Scholarship Program for ANZ businesses, showcasing the support the Dojo and the bank can provide to smart New Zealand SME’s.
