Meet the VC’s

Investors from Australia, Singapore & USA introduce themselves to interesting NZ companies with international growth potential.

What's it all about?

We have Blackbird Ventures, Shearwater Growth Equity and Partners for Growth joining us from Australia, Qualgro from Singapore, and Quidnet Ventures rounding out the investor contingent from San Francisco. All have NZ investment mandates and are on the hunt for interesting companies with international growth potential.

Each of the investors will make a quick pitch to our audience of NZ tech company founders, explaining their investment mandate and the value add they bring to the investment equation. We’ll then let the investors loose to network with founders over drinks and food.
