About Powerhouse Ventures

powerHouse is a New Zealand intellectual property commercialisation company using private and public investment to develop new spin-out ventures sourced primarily from research partners such as universities and Crown Research Institutes.

A pioneer of seed-stage investment in New Zealand, powerHouse focuses on the earliest stages of new high-value technology development. Unlike incubators that offer general business services to any innovative companies, powerHouse is extremely focused and selective. It rigorously screens each opportunity to identify those with the strongest intellectual property value and the greatest potential to gain an unfair advantage in global markets. powerHouse then invests in these companies, sourced from powerHouse's annual seed-stage fund and co-investment.

powerHouse also runs an innovation education programme for studdents and organisations.
