EA Fund 3 

  Early Stage Capital  


  Enterprise Angels  


The law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest. This information is designed to help investors make an informed decision.

If you are a wholesale investor under the definition of that term in clause 3 of Part 1 Schedule 1 of the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013, the usual rules do not apply to offers of financial products made to you. As a result, you may not receive a complete and balanced set of information.

You will also have fewer other legal protections for these investments. Ask questions, read all documents carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself.


EA Fund 3 is a unique opportunity for wholesale investors to gain a diversified portfolio of early stage investments without a huge amount of capital or time commitment. EA Fund 3 is brought to you by Enterprise Angels, one of the largest and best resourced angel investment networks in New Zealand. Enterprise Angels connects experienced early stage investors with curated investment opportunities.

Since launching in 2008, the angel network has facilitated the investment of over $40 million in 78 different early stage and established businesses across a variety of industries. Enterprise Angels believes that growing innovative, socially and environmentally responsible companies is the key to ensuring people, communities, businesses, the environment, and the economy thrive.

With the launch of EA Fund 3, Enterprise Angels plans to build on the successes of EA Fund 1 and 2 and its wider portfolio of innovative companies. Some highlights include:

  • 11 positive exits across the portfolio
  • 10 portfolio companies have successfully raised Venture/Series A funding
  • EA Fund 1 launched in 2014 – 16 portfolio companies – 12% IRR
  • EA Fund 2 launched in 2016 – 20 portfolio companies - 8% IRR
  • Investors in both funds received distributions at the end of 2018

Investing in early stage companies is high risk and potentially high reward. Diversification and due diligence are critical! 

  • Each fund investment undergoes a rigorous due diligence and negotiation process and is backed by experienced early stage investors. 
  • Investing in EA Fund 3 will provide you with a diversified portfolio of up to 30 early stage companies depending on the final fund size. Our investment guide, The Importance of Diversification, looks at some angel stats and why diversification is particularly important in this space.
