Te Ōhaka Startup Incubation Programme is designed to support, nurture and accelerate the growth of early-stage startups with global ambition. We work with founders who are dreaming big and moving fast.
You will join an entrepreneurial-rich and a well-networked community of founders with whom you can exchange ideas and receive the support you need. With more than 40 events and meetups hosted per year, there are plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in the local startup tribe.
Each of the startups in the programme will receive direct 1:1 support from our in-house Startup Incubation Managers. Our mentors will be your guide at every stage in the process to make sure you receive the support you need when you need it.
One of the key enablers of rapid growth is the potential of raising capital in order to fuel your venture’s growth. At Te Ōhaka, we can guide you through the development of your capital strategy and introduce you to the NZ investor ecosystem. Te Ōhaka is seen as a good pipeline for numerous investors including angel groups, venture capital organisations, crowdfunding platforms, and even the odd corporate fund.
Through our relationship with Ministry of Awesome, we also have access to the Hillfarrance Scout Fund which you can read more about here.
Being a high growth startup at Te Ōhaka has been extremely useful, particularly because of the network and the community here. As a startup, being able to surround yourself with people who think in a similar way, who have been through similar experiences and being able to call on a network of experts are the most valuable advantages of being part of Te Ōhaka and been a key part of our journey.
