Having raised over $70m in capital for more than 45 Kiwi businesses, Snowball Effect has developed this new suite of services in response to the challenging and uncertain economic environment.

Snowball Debt offers a range of solutions to help businesses achieve the best debt outcome, including guidance on cash flow and working capital management, accessing bank debt funding and private debt funding.
