An Important Message for NZ Agritech Companies. Have you signed up for Scale-up NZ? It’s Free. And a total no-brainer.

Scale-Up NZ is a significant platform that is being built out by Callaghan Innovation. It is designed to shine a light on New Zealand’s thriving innovation ecosystem. It delivers accurate insights on ambitious, innovative New Zealand companies, removing information gaps that too often prevent our businesses from achieving their potential. 

The platform is based on the hugely successful Start-Up Nation Finder, which provides information on over 7,000 companies that make up Israel’s innovation ecosystem. Thousands of people use Start-Up Nation Finder every day to search for Israeli start-ups, potential partners and investors. 

The platform groups together companies in similar areas of innovation based on an advanced tagging system. With My Collections, registered users can follow and analyse companies, investors, hubs, and multinationals in one easy to manage interface. Users can request mediated introductions, which also has potential to help job seekers connect with possible employers. 

For New Zealand agritech companies, this provides an amazing platform to increase visibility to potential investors & partners around the world. Best of all? It’s free! All you need to do is go online to www.scaleup.nz and check the eligibility criteria for listing your company or entity and, if eligible, upload your business details for review by Callaghan’s team of data analysts. Users can log-in using existing LinkedIn and Google account details. 

As New Zealand’s agritech sector grows, the Scaleup NZ platform provides an invaluable opportunity for companies to increase global visibility. Significant investment is being made into the platform by Callaghan Innovation. It is there for you to use.

Agritech New Zealand strongly supports this initiative. We urge you to make full use of this fantastic opportunity.
