Spark is on a nationwide search to find New Zealand’s most innovative 5G ideas. We’re committed to supporting leading-edge Kiwi businesses in bringing these solutions to life through the 5G Starter Fund.
A minimum requirement to enter is a validated proof of concept, this could be on paper or a working prototype. Over the four month program you will have support from the Spark 5G team, time in our 5G Co-Lab and funding to develop your idea.
The aim of the 5G Starter Fund is to advance your idea or prototype so you can demonstrate it as an MVP by the end of the program. We understand that businesses will be at different levels with their products and the program is flexible to be tailored accordingly.
