We offer $1 million of seed-stage funding

Is your product ready for the market?

We know our Herefords from our heme's. The Sprout team have founded, built, funded and run start-up companies so we know a good one when we see one. 

Our investment team is willing to back ambitious companies, with strong value propositions and global aspirations and that's why we're putting $1m on the dining room table for New Zealand based agtech and foodtech companies to pitch for.

Sprout Investment Information

We offer up to NZD$1m of seed-stage funding for the right companies emerging from our Accelerator*.

However, our team doesn't just stop fertilising your growth there. After we make an investment we continue to work alongside you to help you build your company. We do this by offering:

  • Global connections to our international partner and investor networks, who can play a role in your capital strategy and can help change the trajectory of your company so you can continue to grow
  • A strong pathway for future capital needs, including assisting with capital raising up to Series A (Venture Capital - first $10m)
  • Capital partners that can lead investment for future growth
  • Continued assistance with building a world-class team
  • Mentoring from entrepreneurs with company building and exit experience
  • A long term partnership.

Partnering with Sprout offers you the perfect recipe for success. 

*In special circumstances we can also invest outside of the Accelerator. Contact our Investment team for more information.

Leave your footprints (tapuwae) on the future health of the planet and its people.
