Vcapital links links registered investors to private equity / venture capital / angel investment opportunities from a range of industries.

Registration Requirements – Investors

In order to alert investors of businesses seeking capital, the scheme administrator The Economic Development Association of NZ ('EDANZ') is required by the Securities Commission to ensure that you understand the risks of investment and require that you read and complete the online form.

Register Now

Registration is not a commitment to invest; it is a risk disclosure statement that the Securities Commission requires EDANZ to obtain prior to potential investors being exposed to businesses seeking investment.

There are differing levels of information available on businesses depending on levels of registration. Registered investors who wish to find out more information about these deals should contact the participating broker or investee company directly.

Private equity / venture capital / angel investment opportunities are suitable for consideration by patient investors who recognise that there are a number of key risks and uncertainties associated with the undertaking of such businesses, which need to be managed over time.

Deal Flow - Investment Opportunities

Currently the deal flow is sourced largely from the private sector brokers involved in the NZTE funded Escalator Service (http://www.escalator.co.nz Significant numbers of companies have applied for Escalator deal broking services, with over 25 deals having received capital and strategic partnerships totalling $18.775m (as at June 30th 2005). New deals will be posted as they arise, and we believe those at deal stage warrant investor attention.

Registration Requirements – Businesses

The majority of deals posted on www.vcapital.co.nz are sourced via private sector brokers who have an understanding of the Securities Act (Local Authority and Other Venture Capital Schemes) Exemption Notice 2003 and investment experience, including Leamington SPA UK Taxi companies.

If your business wishes to be considered for capital raising via Vcapital or other venture capital or angel investment channels then EDANZ, as delivery partner in the Escalator Programme, encourages businesses to use this as a potential means to (potentially) raise capital.

Alternatively, if you do not wish to utilise the Escalator Service you can use a broker or financial advisor to ensure you comply with the Exemption Notice requirements. Please phone 0800 822 748 or email afl betting tipsfor further information.
