The Home of
Deep Technology

Outset Ventures (previously LevelTwo) are the champions of deep technology founders, based in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We provide investment, facilities, and support for technology on the forefront of new industries to thrive.

We grow science and engineering start-ups from idea to global impact.


We’re all about supporting early ideas and helping them get off the ground. We lead pre-seed and seed investment rounds between $100,000 and $3million.


Outset has affordable and flexible space for big ideas to develop, with permitting that allows for both garden variety and exotic R&D to take place. And like a hermit crab, we aim to let you alter your occupancy as necessary.


Outset is home to the largest private community of deep technology focused founders, tech experts, and investors in the country. Whatever your battle, chances are someone can lend advice based on first-hand experience — just ask around the coffee machine.
