Startup Queenstown Lakes is here to support you in launching your idea to market. If you believe that raising capital is in your future, we recommend you start by attending a one-on-one session with a business advisor.

The best place to start is to tell us more about your venture. When you connect with one of our business advisors, we will help you with next steps.

Want to pitch to investors?

Startup Queenstown Lakes, the Wanaka & Wakatipu Investment Network (WWIN), and affiliated organizations do not offer, at this time, a formal pitch and capital raising process.

Please contact us if you are formally looking to be introduced to investors who might be interested in your venture. This may include introductions to angel groups and investors locally, regionally, and nationally based.

Investment Checklist

If you are serious about raising capital for your business, you'll want to have a few key documents ready to get going:

  • Cap Table - Shows who owns shares in your business today
  • Business Model Canvas - Clearly explains your business model
  • Profit and Loss Statement and Balance Sheet of your business
  • An executive summary of how much money you're raising, what you intend to do with that investment, and what valuation you intend to give the investor
