New Zealand, meet Flux…
The Icehouse is excited to launch its new accelerator, Flux. The mission is simple - to empower and support talented founders building world-leading technology companies from New Zealand.
Flux provides a pathway to accelerate technology startups, helping them to build a product customers love, then raise further capital to fund their growth.
Once a year we invest between $20,000-$100,000 into 6-8 startups and work closely with them over a 6-month period as they scale their companies. Our investment model allows us the flexibility to work with a hungry young team with an MVP and big aspirations as well as a more advanced teams with a product in market and revenue, who can use our combined resource to help them scale.
The 6-8 selected startups will receive seed funding, have free workspace at The Icehouse and gain access to top tier mentors, extensive global connections, exclusive events and workshops and perks from corporate partners.
We work with our startups from February to August. In July we hold an event called Demo Day where each startup has the opportunity to pitch to 200+ of NZ's most active investors to raise further funding.
We are on the hunt for the best technology startups in NZ! We don’t mind if you are a software company or are a company with building hardware – either way, we can help.
The application process starts with a simple application form which you can find here. All you need to do is answer a handful of questions before the deadline on December 19th.
We will be launching Flux on October 20th at GridAKL. Come along and hear more about Flux and how it can help you scale your company. We will also have Flux mentor, Jason Kerr, Founder of Spoke, share his story about building, scaling and exiting his last company called Findly, a 500 person SaaS company.
