The Electra Business Breakfast runs every month of the year except in January and on the first Wednesday of each month. Electra is the Exclusive Sponsor and Supporter of the breakfast series and they contract Kapiti Business Projects to deliver the breakfast.

You may ask why Electra does this ……….. Electra has been the long term sponsor of the business breakfasts as it recognises that successful businesses are key to successful local communities.

Providing local business people an opportunity to network and to be stimulated and informed by a wide variety of speakers including business icons, economists, politicians, educators and social service providers to name a few is something that Electra is pleased to be able to make happen on a regular basis in Kapiti.

The Electra Business Breakfast complements Electra’s sponsorship of the Electra Business Awards and helps to support other local business development initiatives and work by Kapiti Coast District Council, the Kapiti Coast Chamber of Commerce and others in the community.
