Investor criteria of early stage ventures in New Zealand

by Hattaf Ansari, David Tripe SF Fin and William Wilson | 21 Feb 2018
This study seeks to inform New Zealand entrepreneurs on the needs and wants of New Zealand investors looking to invest in early stage ventures, potentially enabling entrepreneurs to improve the effectiveness of their capital-raising efforts. The study compares investor criteria of early stage ventures in New Zealand with those in the US. Our findings show significant differences between the New Zealand venture capital market and developed markets, such as the US, with New Zealand investors having a relatively short-term focus and valuing different factors in their investment criteria. These differences are likely due to the relatively young age and small size of the New Zealand market.
