About IT Capital

The region's leading venture capital fund, IT Capital focuses on investing in New Zealand and Australia-based e-commerce companies with the intention of transplanting them into larger markets, principally the United States.

Addressing the funding gap that inhibits most innovative Australasian firms, IT Capital provides both early stage funding and management expertise that are not readily available in local markets.

Applying a portfolio approach, the company allows investors to diversify risk and participate in e-commerce opportunities, thereby giving public market investors access to successful businesses at private market prices. IT Capital's international network of venture partners and technology companies accelerates the global transfer of technology.
