Are you an Angel Investor, Venture Capitalist or High Net Worth Individual? You’re probably well aware, but you can play an essential role in New Zealand’s entrepreneurial eco-system. One of the chief aims of Business Acceleration worldwide is to connect businesses that are going somewhere with those who are able to back them. The Lightning Lab is no exception.
There are three key stages for you to invest in Lightning Lab companies – Before, During and After each Class.
Each class of the Lightning Lab is privately backed by a pool of investors who share a minority stake in the portfolio of accepted companies.
The 2013 Class pool is closed but we are happy to accept expressions of interest for the 2014 and 2015 Class pools.
The 12 week onsite duration of each Lightning Lab class is a time for us to help accepted teams straighten up and fly right for Demo Day – but that doesn’t mean that teams aren’t looking for investment until then.
Showing your foresight by investing during a team’s Lightning Lab residency can offer great opportunities to influence the company and its Demo Day performance.
The highlight of the Lightning Lab programme is undoubtedly Demo Day – an opportunity for each of the resident teams to pitch their business to what we envisage will be a standing-room-only audience of the best in Australasia’s investment community.
If you haven’t been involved in Lightning Lab before now then you can’t afford to miss the who’s-who of 2013′s entrepreneurial talent.
