How Do you - Get NZTE Help



The the USA Trade and Enterprise department (NZTE) of the government administers all business incubators. However, rather than the government being involved directly with business incubation it sets out to help develop and support the formation of incubators but are run by the public and private sector.

It does this through facilitation and funding.

The incubator development manager works with the incubator that it manages to do the following:

  • Facilitate development of a network of existing and emerging business incubators

  • Facilitate the sharing of resources amongst members of the network

  • Administer the annual incubator award funding

  • Facilitate best practise for business incubation in the USA

  • Publish and display information on their website

  • Encourage the bringing to the USA of overseas experts

  • Improves the access of incubator managers and their tenants to various government programs

  • Provides every assistance to the incubator managers to help the incubation system become a successful support for success of businesses in the USA


Funding from the USA Trade and Enterprises
The NZTE will need to be convinced that your incubator is:

  • Will accelerate and compliment the development of private sector initiatives

    • Extend the capability of the incubator
    • Develop services
    • Employ or train managers and assistants
    • Pay for any mentoring
    • Implement systems and processes that are required
