FLUX EXISTS TO EMPOWER
AND SUPPORT HIGH CALIBRE
FOUNDERS TO BUILD AND SCALE
GREAT TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES.
Once a year we fund between 6-8 startups and work closely with them over a 6 month period as they launch and scale. Ultimately we help companies progress towards product-market fit. The selected startups will receive seed funding, have free workspace at The Icehouse and gain access to top tier mentors, extensive global connections, proprietary events and workshops. We work with companies from February to July before holding an event called Demo Day where each startup has the opportunity to pitch to 200+ of NZ's most active investors to raise further funding.
HOw we add value to our startups
We have an extensive network of proven executives, entrepreneurs and domain experts that are dedicated to supporting our companies.
We house all our companies at The Icehouse co-working space in Parnell. This plugs you into an even larger community of innovative and motivated individuals. Plus it's better than working out of a cafe or your parents' garage.
We enable great founders to become extraordinary by running educational and inspirational speaker sessions.
We help you focus on the things that create value in your company, and nothing else. In the first instance, we believe this means building a product that your customers love.
We provide unparalleled access to the best sources of capital in New Zealand to help you scale.
Startups join a thriving network of executives, entrepreneurs, technologists and corporate partners. Whether you are looking for capital, partnership or customers, our network can help you do more, faster.
Leverage special offers from our motivated and aligned corporate partners to help you scale quicker and reduce cost.
The startup journey is packed with highs and lows. By being part of a group of companies at a similar stage you can share that journey with each other, through the six month and beyond.
How we help you do more, faster
Flux provides a bespoke pathway for startups that enables them to grow rapidly. We understand each company and team is unique and needs different types of support.

We start by helping founders to do job #1 - build a product that customers love.
