Introducing our Silicon Valley Network

Wharf42 has established significant partnerships with Silicon Valley’s leading entrepreneur and investor networks. We are a Plug and Play Tech Center International Partner and a Global Outreach Partner of SVForum. We host the Wharf42 Meteoroid Program at the Plug and Play offices in Sunnyvale, CA.

In New Zealand, we support the commercialisation of complex research and IP from our Universities, Crown Research Institutes & the private sector, via WNT Ventures. A co-founder of WNT, we work with our Silicon Valley networks to provide some of the key global connectivity that will be necessary to scale and accelerate WNT’s investment opportunities.

In April 2016, we co-organised SVForum’s ‘How Digital Technologies are Transforming AgTech’ Conference with Callaghan Innovation and New Zealand Trade & Enterprise. With our extensive contacts within the Silicon Valley AgTech startup and investor ecosystem, we were able to support New Zealand’s growing AgTech community connect and engage with both its Valley and wider North America market peers.
