Event Details

Thank you for supporting this event. We have reserved spaces for you and your guests and would like you to join us at this forum where we hope to effect positive change for early stage companies in New Zealand. 

 

THE HISTORY

Accelerator programmes have been running in New Zealand for 3 years and have produced several early stage companies that are investment opportunities for the angel investment community. Lightning Lab alone has produced 45 such companies from five programmes. To date, 18 of those companies from Lightning Lab have received investment from angel investors in New Zealand. Last year, the investment in Lightning Lab companies represented 15% of the entire first stage investment total in New Zealand.

 

PURPOSE OF ANGELS & FOUNDERS FORUM

Callaghan Innovation, the Angel Association of New Zealand and Lightning Lab are holding two forums in May (one in Auckland and one in Wellington) that will bring together a select group of angel investors and startup founders for an open dialogue about early stage investing. A panel of experienced founders, angels and startup attorneys will discuss questions submitted by attendees on funding issues, investment structures and market expectations. We will also open dialogue with all attendees to debate ways to best fund early stage companies in New Zealand for growth.


Callaghan Innovation wants to use the information shared in these forums to help set policy on funding for accelerators and incubators in the future. The Angel Association of New Zealand wants to share the information discussed in these forums with all angels in New Zealand. Lightning Lab wants to use the information from the forums to help set expectations for founders in current programmes and to inform future programming.
