Waikato Innovation Park is New Zealand’s growth hub for Ag-Biotech businesses.
We deliver commercial space, support and opportunities to grow and develop innovative agritechnology companies into valuable exporting businesses. We do this in three major ways:
Technology Park and Environment
Currently home to over 50 companies, we are located on 17 hectares of land and offer modern commercial and laboratory facilities in an attractive park setting. More importantly, our tenants have ready access to specialist resources and research facilities, and operate in a collaborative environment which connects them to the region’s most successful companies.
Global Agricultural Developments
Waikato Innovation Park are the driving force behind NZ Dairy Solutionz and NZ Sheep & Beef Solutionz - brands that are taking NZ’s leading agricultural and biotechnologies to the global market. We lead a consortium of technology and service providers who are targeting new market segments by offering turnkey, large scale agricultural solutions.
We recognize that financing research and development, and finding capital to commercialise or expand that novel idea are key ingredients for success. Waikato Innovation Park can facilitate access to funding for growth and expansion. As a TechNZ Regional partner, we assess and deliver research and development grants. We also act as the conduit to the Greenfields Network, a Waikato based collective of angel investors.
