This is an opportunity to provide services to entrepreneurs and startup businesses that are globally focused with high-growth potential. High-growth startups with repeatable and scalable business models play a critical role in increasing innovation, diversifying the economy and creating high-value jobs. Government funding aims to support the development of an entrepreneurial culture where founders have support to develop entrepreneurial mindset and resilience, and to develop many more high-growth startups and serial entrepreneurs.
Successful respondents will become one of Callaghan Innovation’s Programme Suppliers and will provide a fast-paced programme to accelerate the initial stages of starting or rapidly growing a business. You will help entrepreneurs and startups improve their business capability, accelerate their product and business development to the point that they are investment ready (or to fast fail). You will contribute to growing quality deal flow and entrepreneurial capability for New Zealand’s startup eco-system.
Funding is available to successful respondents contracted as Programme Suppliers to deliver General Accelerator Programmes. Contracts will commence 1 July 2019. The maximum term of the contracts will be for one year with the end date being 30 June 2020.
