Bolt – A Business Community that works.


Made in Whakatane, for the Eastern Bay of Plenty, promoted to the world!

That’s right, Bolt is created and managed by locals who understand how business works.  In fact, the same people who run Bolt also run Lightning Hub and Ake Innovation – so you can be assured that you are in capable hands!
