WNT Ventures is a technology focused incubator with a committed pool of capital in a fund structure, for investing into pre-seed, seed and start-up stage companies. Based in Tauranga, New Zealand, we actively seek IP-rich technologies throughout the country from publically funded institutes and the private sector. WNT is often actively involved in company formation and assisting companies in becoming investment ready including developing company strategy, initial IP protection and sourcing of management teams and Boards.
Together with our Limited Partners, we offer significant hands-on experience for investing into a range of technologies including but not limited to the Primary Sector – Agriculture, Horticulture and Food technologies, ICT, Engineering and Materials, Medical Technologies along with Robotics and High-Value Manufacturing.
Our collaborative approach we have with our investment partners means WNT Ventures has the ability to address complex IP opportunities from different perspectives. We leverage our commercial backgrounds, risk-capital, domestic and international networks and our links within the NZ government via Callaghan Innovation, to provide early stage, high risk capital investment and incubation of technology, accelerating their growth in a targeted manner.
