Our innovation system partners work with us to provide comprehensive and integrated solutions for New Zealand businesses.

There are around 500 organisations directly involved in commercialising innovation in New Zealand.

Our partnership with New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) is crucial in helping us grow internationally successful businesses in New Zealand.

Regional Business Partners and research organisations help us provide localised access to information, training and development services and funding.

We work closely with the nine universities and seven Crown Research Institutes and other tertiary education organisations and private R&D providers to enable nationwide access to science and technology expertise.

Technology-focused business incubators, industry associations and private sector science, engineering and technology companies and sites help us to provide a direct channel to the R&D community for New Zealand businesses.

We collectively reduce barriers to growth faced by New Zealand businesses with other government agencies, including regional economic development agencies and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, the Treasury, the Ministry of Primary Industries, the New Zealand Venture Investment Fund and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
