Startup Investment New Zealand

The magazine for angel investors

Welcome to the new-look Startup Investment magazine.

PwC's now partnering with the New Zealand Angel Association and NZVIF to produce Startup Investment New Zealand, and it's an opportunity we're all excited about. We're aiming to develop the magazine into a one-stop shop for understanding how early-stage investment is tracking in New Zealand, with a few smart opinions on where it's heading next. 

We've led this new-look edition with an article on how our local startup ecosystem compares globally and the role of angel investors in taking it to the next level. Whenever I'm talking to startup founders, especially in the tech space, there's a real feeling that our startup ecosystem can  - and should  - compete with the best in the world. We've all got a role to play here, and it was certainly interesting to read Bridget Coates' take on how the sector has evolved and where it's going next. 

I hope you enjoy the new-look magazine. For us, this edition is our MVP (a "Minimum Viable Publication" if you will) and we'd love to hear from you where we should head after version 1.0. If you have any thoughts, please let us know.
