Wellington has a thriving startup culture with about 400 businesses started in 2013 alone.
There’s a well-connected, experienced and successful group of active investors who are passionate about supporting the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Wellington also has a growing pool of technical and business talent – which startups need to be ultimately successful.
Wellington has the right balance between size and intimacy, with all the trappings of being a big city with a strong sense of community. It is impossible to walk in the CBD and not run into friends or colleagues. It is also a relatively cheap place to relocate to and live in as a startup.
