Picking winners and keeping investment in New Zealand

Angel investors are an integral part of the investment ecosystem. When it comes to picking winners, the government doesn't always get it right. And what happens after companies like Right Hemisphere are snapped up by overseas giants after receiving millions in state funding?

Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
