Angel Investment in New Zealand

New Zealand is located at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and is part of the Asia Pacific region. We are a globally connected, trading nation with more than a million New Zealanders living in other countries.

Our workforce is talented, well educated and competitively priced, with an aptitude for innovation and cutting edge technology and a focus on excellence and quality.

We enjoy a politically and economically stable society, and a positive business environment that has one of the lowest levels of corruption in the world and is supported by a robust legal system that protects intellectual property.

New Zealanders are recognized for their flair for original thinking and determined application to what ever they set their minds do. This leads to the development of novel products and processes and unique solutions for difficult problems.

We offer world-class research and development capability based on collaborative relationships between public research institutes, universities and the private sector and supported by government initiatives and investment.
