Icehouse Valued Partners
The Icehouse is a partnership with The University of Auckland Business School, BNZ, HP, New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, Gen-i, and Telecom. There are a number of companies that also support specific business areas within The Icehouse.
The partners believe New Zealand has great potential but at times lacks the capability to grow businesses from their early stages into substantial international businesses. The Icehouse reflects the partners’ commitment to create an organisation that will empower and assist New Zealand businesses to succeed in international markets.
The partners strongly believe taking New Zealand businesses international is critical to the success of its economy.
The partners support The Icehouse financially and with the commitment of time, effort and knowledge.
The Icehouse was founded in 2001 by the University of Auckland Business School.
