NZ startup gets Sydney Angels support!
Congratulations to JNRY for securing their recent funding round and especially for attracting the investment from Sydney Angels. Great stuff!
In the early days of Australia’s COVID-19 lockdown, we spent a lot of time considering what the economic crisis would mean for startups, and especially for those seeking funding. In particular, the concern was that seed and early-stage funding could be under threat, as individuals became more cautious, and VCs focused on supporting their portfolio companies.
But, this brave new world is never short of surprises. Since then, we’ve reported on a string of investment rounds of all shapes and sizes, including for startups at the earlier end of the scale.
Preezie secured just over half a million in seed funding for its e-commerce tech, and just this week, Antler announced the 13 startups that have secured $100,000 apiece in initial capital and a place in the second stage of the startup’s generator program.
