We’re proud that the work we do at ThincLab Canterbury has a significant impact on the business community around Canterbury and across the New Zealand economy.
As our companies grow and scale, they contribute to a thriving business ecosystem. ThincLab Canterbury businesses continue to secure overseas investment and attract international talent, with significant benefits for the national and regional economy.
Our close affiliation with the University of Canterbury Business School and the UC Centre for Entrepreneurship as well as university-wide science and technology research, provides a rich pipeline of both talent and intellectual property, resulting in opportunities for students to start their own businesses or become employed in startups.
Our connections to other ThincLab centres worldwide provide openings to global markets and sources of capital.
