Ice Angels have invested over $100m into high growth startups and Robbie has some great advice for founders and investors.
It has been an exciting 16 years for the investment arm of The Icehouse. More than $100m has been invested into 165 startups since 2003.
We’ve invested in technology to re-grow human skin for burn victims, bugs that extract gold from e-waste, software for managing “swarms” of robots, “intelligent” asthma inhalers, an online platform that helps users learn to play music, and much more.
We have had startups compete and win globally and others stumble and fail. Around 130 are still on their journey.
To mark our $100m milestone, we want to share some of the insights we’ve learned from the founders and investors of some of New Zealand’s boldest and brightest startups.
