The $Unlimited Investment Challenge is an initiative led by Unlimited magazine and originally set up for entrepreneurs who wanted to grow their business globally via the UK. This year the programme will be open to New Zealand companies seeking investment to grow in all export markets. The programme is strongly supported with expertise from early-stage investors, professional service providers, export market experts, sponsoring partners and leading entrepreneurs.

A potent catalyst for investment into New Zealand companies, the programme will allow successful companies to become investment ready for all export markets. Participants will have the opportunity to research, analyse, and structure their business models and rehearse their investment pitches before making real pitches to real investors with real money.
A qualified group of participants will be invited to take part in the five-month programme of support and direction to become investment ready. With committed investment advisers and fund providers engaged in the initiative, the likelihood of securing funding is much higher than going it alone.
The challenge is open to startup, high-growth, and enterprise businesses
Investment amounts could range from $100K to $5 million, sourced from a mix of investors.
Funds will come from early-stage investors and/or angel investors.
Challenge partners are: James & Wells; and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, Escalator Service
If you think your business idea is the next big thing and need to secure funds to grow your business into the UK, US, Australian, or Asian market and beyond, the 2009 $Unlimited Investment Challenge is for you. All investors are New Zealand-based.
