Why IV Seed III?

For nearly 20 years, Icehouse Ventures has invested in exceptional Kiwi entrepreneurs at the earliest stages of their journey.  We believe the next generation of startups NZ produces will be the largest, boldest and most experienced we have ever seen.

Over the past five years dozens of New Zealand startups have grown into $100m+ and $1b+ businesses. Many of tomorrow’s founders will emerge having been early employees at these success stories, armed with the battle scars, confidence and context required to succeed in building a high growth venture business.  

We are already seeing this play out with founders of companies like Halter (ex Rocket Lab), Mint Innovation (ex Lanzatech) and Sharesies (ex Xero), all of whom we backed when they first started.

As one of New Zealand's oldest, largest, and most-active seed stage investors, Icehouse Ventures is uniquely positioned to invest in and support the most promising entrepreneurs from the most promising generation.

IV Seed Fund III is your opportunity to join us as we invest in 30-40 startups over the next three to four years.
