Investment Showcases

New Zealand has unique characteristics as a country which mean that many companies are 'born global' from day one. We're small, geographically remote, have a wide range of free trade agreements and significant government investment in innovation.

We are a growing hub for innovative and disruptive companies that are seeking growth capital to unleash their potential on the international stage.

As part of our work to grow companies internationally, we collaborate with industry and other partners to deliver showcases that help companies source smart, strategic investment that accelerates their growth objectives.

For investors this is an opportunity to hear from some of our ecosystem’s most innovative companies at an early stage of their development, and operating in sectors where New Zealand has a global competitive advantage. 

Participating New Zealand companies receive a package of support via our NZTE Investment team to strengthen business growth plans, become investment-ready, and deliver compelling pitches.  

NZTE Investment is focused on attracting catalytic investment for New Zealand. We do this by helping prepare internationalising businesses to engage and connect with investors, and attracting international investment to companies, regions and sectors to unlock growth for New Zealand.  Our staff are located in key international markets across 13 locations globally.
