The NZVIF was established by the New Zealand government in 2002 to build a vibrant early
stage investment market in New Zealand. We have $245 million of funds under management which
are invested through two vehicles:
the $195 million Venture Capital Fund of funds
the $50 million Seed Co-investment Fund
All our investments are made either through privately managed venture capital funds, or
alongside experienced angel investors, who we partner with to invest into
New Zealand-originated, high-growth potential companies.
We are based in Auckland and are governed by a private sector board of directors who provide
oversight to our investment management team. We also play an active role in market
development, alongside investors and the New Zealand Private Equity & Venture Capital
Association and the Angel Association New Zealand.
