Amazon Web Services and New Zealand Trade & Enterprise are teaming up to bring over some of Australia’s best venture capitalists, representing funds totalling over $2bn, to New Zealand for a pitch roadshow in late August.

We know there’s a vibrant startup ecosystem in New Zealand, but growth capital is still hard to come by.

A tour like this hasn’t been done before, but we’re extremely optimistic about the opportunities it presents for the local startup communities.

Encouraging entrepreneurship and deal-flow is the core reason for this tour….so if you’re a tech startup seeking funding, or planning to raise in the near future, this is a fantastic opportunity.

Applications are now open for the best of New Zealand’s tech startups to pitch to Australia’s best venture capitalists in:

  • Auckland on Thursday, 24 August: 12 of the best tech startups will pitch – 6 over breakfast and 6 over lunch
  • Wellington on Friday, 25 August: 6 of the best tech startups will pitch over breakfast

Selection Criteria:  The only real criteria is that you must have a tech business to apply, and that you’re currently raising (or planning to raise in the near future) – anything from Seed to Series B.
