We invest across various lifecycles of companies from ideation to maturity. Deep experience in specific vertical markets often leads to exciting inceptions, where we identify areas for new start-ups. Many investments are formed from our incubation efforts. We rally existing ideas or create new companies by adding a seasoned management member to spearhead development. Our deep tech incubator, Bridgewest Ventures New Zealand, in partnership with Callaghan Innovation’s 2020 Technology Incubator Programme, is funding new ideas and boosting start-ups in New Zealand.
Investments span the globe, with emphasis in U.S., China, New Zealand and Australia. Our team networks with business leaders and communities and are adept at seeking out people and opportunities that are less visible due to their geographic locale. Understanding the U.S. gives us an edge in furthering the success of external companies to expand into the highly competitive U.S. marketplace.
Capital investments are shaped to the business growth needs through equity, debt or hybrid investment structures. There are no preset deal structures or time horizons. We understand each investment needs to be customized to the business talent and market opportunity.
