A fund focused on New Zealand technology companies

The Punakaiki Fund, led by some interesting folks, has recently appeared that will invest in New Zealand based technology, internet and design companies.

They did a pre-registration to gauge interest and according to their email, the response seems pretty good:

“Many thanks for registering your interest in Punakaiki Fund, contributing to a total of over $9 million from over 600 people. You have helped us demonstrate to the wider investor community and the public that there is real demand for Punakaiki Fund, and we thank you for that.”

It’s been covered by a bunch of the usual kiwi news outlets:

One thing I love about living here in London is the strong and vibrant technology scene. There are loads of workshops, meetup and events to go to every day.

I’m excited to see how this fund can foster more activity in the local NZ tech scene. 😀

Exciting times 😀
