Our partnership with Hustle Education
Hustle Education is part of Hustle Group, an umbrella business comprising of a handful of local eateries such as Joe’s Garage Wigram and Fush, a couple of food trucks, a catering business and Hustle Education.
Hustle Education works alongside businesses and organisations to help normalise and imbed te reo Māori into everyday business, and better understand te ao Māori.
I wanted Hustle Education to become a partner with the Chamber so that we could work with the huge Chamber network of business and help them build Māori cultural confidence within their businesses.
Although Hustle Education is a small business, being a partner at the Chamber gives our business a degree of mana, and becoming a partner means that the Chamber has done all the due diligence so that other businesses out there don’t have to, and they can trust us to do a great job!
Hustle Education's core services
Hustle Education’s flagship product is their Cultural Leadership Programme which is designed for businesses who want to develop Māori cultural confidence and capability in their leaders, in order to build more positive and meaningful partnerships with Māori and gain knowledge around what it takes for their business to become an excellent Tiriti partner.
Hustle Education's roots
Operating since 2020, Hustle Education’s major point of difference is the inspiration and passion that its owner Anton Matthews exudes at every opportunity he has to talk about the kaupapa of te reo and tikanga Māori, which is something that is very dear to his heart. Anton has a unique ability to provide a welcoming and safe space for all participants to learn and discuss topics that have historically been controversial and involve polarising narratives.
Who is Anton Matthews: “I’m a pāpā to my three awesome tamariki and husband to my beautiful wife Jess first and foremost. My whānau means everything to me. I don’t come from a long line of business owners or entrepreneurs, but I’ve always loved being independent and making my own money, so as an adult I’ve really developed a passion for business.
I was brought up in kura kaupapa Māori which means that the values instilled in me as a tamati (child) stay with me today and are woven through everything we do in our businesses. I am passionate about building a business that creates positive impact and inspiration for my community, especially rangatahi Māori, by showing them that te reo Māori and tikanga Māori is valuable and it does have a place in business."
