Startup Investment Magazine April 2021
Welcome to the April 2021 edition of Startup Investment magazine.
This time last year, we were considering what impact COVID-19 might have on the world of startup investment
and the importance of backing startups through periods of uncertainty. A year later, and the ecosystem has demonstrated not only its resilience but an increase in maturity. In March 2021 alone we saw two substantial Kiwi grown technology businesses, Vend and Seequent, sold to offshore buyers. The realisation of value at this scale creates not only an opportunity for founders and investors to reinvest funds and expertise in new startups, it also attracts a wider pool of investors to New Zealand to help get future startups off the ground. We now have a startup ecosystem that is more self-sufficient and sustainable.
