A quick guide to raising growth capital
Having access to capital is vital for any business – especially when you’re planning to grow internationally. Without adequate capital, you won’t be able to execute your strategy or keep up your momentum in new markets.
New Zealand businesses often find it hard to understand the difference between working capital and growth capital. Each type has different uses and therefore means approaching different investors or financiers. As a result, it’s essential to make a plan in advance for raising the capital you need to finance your growth and scale your business.
This page covers some of the essential elements of raising capital for international growth – the what, why, when and how. It has been put together by NZTE’s Investment team based on their knowledge of capital and finance, and their experience of what it takes for New Zealand businesses to succeed internationally.
