Invest in the next generation of companies defining NZ
Icehouse Ventures has enabled over 2000 investors to access the venture capital asset class. We recognise that investors preferences are as diverse as the founders we back. Accordingly, our funds offer a range of strategies for investors to build their portfolio.
Monitor your portfolio, access company updates, benchmark your performance and download investment statements any time. Icehouse Ventures’ investor portal brings professional investor-grade portfolio analysis to the early-stage asset class.
Choose Your Preference
We recognise that investors’ preferences are unique reflecting their values, interests, experience and risk tolerances. We offer a suite of funds with varying strategies, allowing investors to align their investments to their preferences.
Investing in start-ups is often a decade long commitment. It’s important to enjoy the journey, not just the destination. We host dinners and events for investors to visit companies and meet their founders & teams, celebrating milestones along the way.
We exist to back kiwi founders from day one
Our team understand the ambiguity of ambitious early-stage ventures and are comfortable investing pre-product, pre-revenue and pre-team. Since 2003, we’ve invested >$320m in over 300 New Zealand companies from pre-seed to Series A and beyond. We look for founders and teams with unique insights solving hard and interesting problems.
IV has over $500m in assets under management. We invest from $100k in the first round to $5m+ in later rounds. We exist to back founders all the way.
Over 2000 active investors support us and the founders we back with their capital, insights, and resources. Their diverse backgrounds and skills help our portfolio compete and win.
The best people to impact founders are those on the same journey. We host frequent retreats and events bringing together the founders we back and their teams to support and learn from each other.
“As a first time deep tech entrepreneur, I’ve valued having a partner like Icehouse Ventures. They hosted me at their Showcase, supported me with First Cut, led my $700k seed round, and helped me connect with key target customers."
