Outset Ventures is the Home of Deep Technology. We grow science and engineering start-ups from idea to global impact.

Outset Ventures are the champions of deep technology founders, based in Aotearoa New Zealand. We provide investment, space, and support for technology ventures on the forefront of new industries to thrive.


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.

Launch Lab

This six-month programme is designed to help get your idea off the ground. You will reside on site, immersed in the deep technology venture community, with bespoke support and investment.


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.
