Scale-Up New Zealand is set to speed up innovation and the growth of innovative businesses in Aoteoroa New Zealand.

On 16 April 2019 Callaghan Innovation launched Scale-Up NZ, a free online platform that showcases New Zealand’s vibrant innovation ecosystem to the world.

What is Scale-Up NZ?

Created from a model that is hugely successful overseas, Scale-Up NZ makes it faster and easier for ambitious businesses to find and connect with the people, capital and other help they need to innovate and grow, here and offshore. It will also create opportunities for investors, incubators, multinationals and other collaborators to connect with innovative New Zealand businesses.

Tūhura: Find

Scale-Up NZ enables users to find the accurate information they need, when they need it, in multiple ways. Get the inside track by diving into verified details of the latest investments, deals and start-ups, and navigate the ecosystem to explore new technology and business trends. For more in-depth analysis, browse for specific information using the platform’s comprehensive search feature. The advanced search options filter companies by business model, funding stage, location, product stage and more.

Tūhono: Connect

Users can find key contacts for businesses they’re interested in and ask for facilitated introductions to key people – extending networks and helping create connections that matter. Contact requests will be mediated to ensure their mutual value.

Turuki: Grow

Similar networks overseas are growth engines for ambitious companies and national economies. In Aotearoa New Zealand, Scale-Up NZ will supercharge innovation and help build world-beating businesses and a better future for our children.
