Startup NZ

Healthy, wealthy communities, economy and country through entrepreneurship.

Startup NZ is a three part initiative to help educate, connect and celebrate Kiwi entrepreneurs and the organisations who make up our startup and innovation ecosystem.

With the help of our supporters these services underpin our broader social impact mission of helping young New Zealanders learn about entrepreneurship through annual scholarships for our Startup NZ Entrepreneurs Programme.
