Our organisation

New Zealand Growth Capital Partners (NZGCP) was established by the New Zealand Government in 2002 to build a vibrant early-stage technology investment market in New Zealand.

We operate two investment vehicles; Elevate and Aspire which are funds designed to stimulate private investment into this space through a fund-of-funds and co-investment model.

We are also involved in a range of market development initiatives that include sponsorship and support of programmes, events and other initiatives alongside ecosystem partners like New Zealand Private Capital and the Angel Association of New Zealand.
