2019 Electra Awards EventRunning continuously since 1993, the Electra Kāpiti Horowhenua Business Awards are possibly the longest-running Regional Business Awards in New Zealand. 2019 is the 3rd year that Nikau Foundation has been involved in the awards.

The Give Where You Live Achievement Award, recognising businesses who are committed and smart supporters of their local communities, was founded in 2018. The finalists this year are Kāpiti Coast Funeral Home, Otaki New World and Web Genius.

“Kāpiti is a tight-knit district, with a strong and active business community. By positioning ourselves alongside business-based philanthropy, we come together to celebrate all the good work that businesses are doing.”
