Sponsorships

We provide direct support to a number of initiatives throughout Christchurch in order to make the city a more interesting and vibrant place for all of its citizens to live in.


Enable Digital Series

Enable became a major sponsor of the Canterbury Employers' Chamber of Commerce in September 2017 – so the two organisations can work closely together in a range of ways to benefit local businesses. A part of the sponsorship includes the Enable Digital Series – a new series to educate and inspire Canterbury businesses on the potential of digital technology.

Providing free WiFi in the Re:Start Mall 

Enable has partnered with Trade Me, FX Networks and The Press to provide free wireless internet access for all visitors to the Re:Start pop-up shopping precinct. Enabling visitors to enjoy free connectivity in this important retail area demonstrates our commitment to the recovery of the Christchurch community and businesses.

Supporting Christchurch small businesses

Enable is also a sponsor (by providing fibre connectivity) to GreenHouse – a Christchurch collaborative hub focused on supporting and commercialising small business.

 


 

Enabling Our People

We’re proud to be able to provide an opportunity for our people to bring Enable to life within their own communities, by supporting them outside of work through our people inspired sponsorship scheme.

Little Sprouts Christchurch - 2017

Enable understand just how tough winter can be in Christchurch, so to make it just a little bit easier for local families we sponsored five Merino Kids Sleeping Bags to be put in their life-changing baby boxes.
