What is Scale-Up NZ?

Created from a model that is hugely successful overseas, Scale-Up NZ will make it faster and easier for ambitious businesses to find and connect with the people, capital and other help they need to innovate and grow, here and offshore. It will also create opportunities for investors and multinationals to connect with innovative NZ businesses.

The Scale-Up NZ team will prepare the initial profiles, but companies will eventually be able to upload and maintain their own data. This information will be regularly vetted and updated by our team to ensure accuracy.

Tūhura: Find

The platform will enable users to find the accurate information they need, when they need it, in multiple ways. Users can get the inside track by diving into verified details of the latest investments, deals and startups, and can navigate the ecosystem to explore new technology and business trends. For more in-depth analysis users can browse for specific information using the platform’s comprehensive search feature. They will also be able to use advanced search options to filter companies by business model, funding stage, location, product stage and more.

Tūhono: Connect

Users will be able to find key contacts for businesses they’re interested in and ask for facilitated introductions to key people – extending networks and helping create connections that matter. Contact requests will be mediated to ensure their mutual value.

Turuki: Grow

Similar networks overseas are growth engines for ambitious companies and national economies. In Aotearoa New Zealand, Scale-Up NZ will supercharge innovation and help build world-beating businesses and a better future for our children.
