New businesses often face an obstacle when it comes to funding their business. Saving start-up capital can be difficult, and in a businesses early days, one may need to borrow money from a wide variety of places - while banks wait for you to become more established before providing any business loans.
Angel Investors are an increasingly popular source of business funding, with more and more established angel investors becoming available in markets such as New Zealand. This combined with the modern day ability to connect with investors throughout the world allows the business funding options to cover a wider range.
Entrepreneurs in New Zealand can also seek capital from government programmes such as the recent Seed Co-investment Fund, along with angel investors who are already members of our network. We connect entrepreneurs to thousands of business angels around the world, including hundreds of investors based in New Zealand.
