Crown entity company

The New Zealand Venture Investment Fund Limited (NZVIF) invests into venture capital funds and partners with angel investor groups to drive investment into young New Zealand companies with high growth potential. NZVIF was established to help build a vibrant venture capital market in New Zealand.

NZVIF is responsible for the implementation of two programmes.  The venture capital fund (VC) programme is a fund of funds that aims to invest  $160 million, alongside private sector co-investors, in a series of privately managed venture capital investment funds.

NZVIF is also responsible for the implementation of the Seed Co-investment Fund (SCIF).  Through this programme, NZVIF aims to invest up to $40 million over the next five to six years, alongside approved partners, in small- and medium-sized businesses which are unable to attract venture capital funding because of their size.
