Who We Are

The Icehouse Is Where Kiwi Businesses Grow.

We work with a wide range of businesses at various stages of growth – from entrepreneurs launching new ventures through to successful owner-managers wanting to take their business to the next level. Through our topic specific workshops, transformative group programmes and customised business coaching we give our customers the skills, clarity and support to grow their business or fast track their startup because no-one gets them better than we do.

New Zealand is a country of small and medium-sized businesses. The Icehouse was founded in 2001 in recognition of the importance of this sector to the NZ economy. We’re committed to creating a high performing New Zealand economy where ideas and businesses thrive. We believe that to unleash the economic potential, we need to lift the capabilities and aspirations of owners, entrepreneurs and people who run startup and SME businesses to enable them to take the business forward.

Since 2001, we have worked with over 5,000 ambitious owner-managers and entrepreneurs. On average our established businesses grow revenue by 12% every year, meaning they grow 2.5x faster than the average NZ business. Our startups have collectively created over 900 jobs, raised more than $117m in funding and have generated over $325m in revenue.

The Icehouse is owned by a not-for-profit trust and backed by the financial support and expertise of the New Zealand government and an extensive group of committed partners that includes: AJ Park, Bank of New Zealand, Deloitte Private, HP New Zealand, Microsoft New Zealand, Spark, Visa and our founder The University of Auckland Business School.

Become a Business of International Quality (BIQ)

We know that business owners can find it hard to take a big picture perspective and identify areas of their business that could be targeted to improve performance. This is why we have created the Business of International Quality Barometer in collaboration with The University of Auckland Business School and based on research with industry experts and those in the thick of it; NZ business owners and managers.

The BIQ Barometer is an easy to use online tool to help you identify your business strengths and opportunities for improvement in under an hour.

The end game is real and practical advice that you can use as a guide to accelerate your business growth, whilst avoiding the costs of making the mistakes of those who have gone before.

The BIQ Barometer will help make your business more successful by honing in on six areas that we know contribute to success: Leadership, Offering, Market, Processes, Governance, and Capital. 

Whether your idea of success is taking on an international market, or solidly defending your local position, you can grow your business with good advice and practical solutions.
