Auckland- based civil engineering contractor, Earth Stability, has been crowned the 2018 Westpac Business Growth Grants winner and will receive $50,000 to continue to help grow their business.

The Growth Grants are part of Westpac's push to help upcoming Kiwi businesses reach their potential, no matter location, industry, or even if a customer.

Each of the six finalists which also included Pure Sport Nutrition, Taska Prosthetics, JumpFlex, Origin Earth, and Yello had 30mins yesterday to pitch their business to a panel of judges in a dragon’s den style at Westpac on Takutai Square in Auckland.

It was Earth Stability, which specialises in ground reinforcement works that took out the top spot - $40,000 cash and $10,000 worth of advertising.

This is the fourth year the Growth Grants has been run, with Kiwi SMEs keen to grow telling us what their growth vision is, and a panel of judges select six finalists and one overall winner, who will be announced on 26 July.

Each of the six finalists also received:

- Flights and accommodation to attend the Nurture Change Business Retreat in Hawaii, to take time out to focus on working on their business with a range of experts and business leaders.

- Expert business mentoring including legal, HR and accounting advice.

- A $2,500 Quest business accommodation package voucher.
