From idea to reality with BCC
BCC is all about turning innovative ideas into thriving new businesses. It secures investment funding to grow technology businesses, offers management support and mentoring for start-ups, and facilitates the journey from concept to commercialisation.
BCC can provide the experience, contacts and resources you need to get your company up, running, and ready for growth. It offers a market validation programme that will take you through the process of identifying customer needs, refining your products or services, and turning your business idea into reality. If you have developed new technology, BCC can provide the resources, momentum and expertise needed to transfer your idea from research to retail. For existing businesses looking at research and development projects, the BCC is the gateway to Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) funding. MBIE can fund up to 50% of the costs of R&D projects, and provides a great opportunity to enhance and grow your business.
