Knowledge & Planning

Planning successfully for the future is reliant on evaluating the past and current environments in which businesses and the community operate.   The CUBE is monitoring key business and economic data in order to gain a good understanding of developments and provide key partners with current information.  

The CUBE will also act as an 'Information' Repository and will endeavour to source information that is relevant to supporting and assisting businesses.

Business Advocacy

The CUBE independently or with its Partners will advocate in the best interests of the business community on a range of initiatives.  In recent times, the CUBE has been communicating with key parties involved in the Ultrafast Broadband 2 (UFB2) roll-out to ensure that the importance of connectivity to the people and businesses in the Upper Clutha region is recognised and understood by decision makers.
