New Zealand Trade & Enterprise (NZTE) is the New Zealand Government’s national economic development agency. NZTE works to improve the international competitiveness and sustained profitability of New Zealand business by providing access to people, knowledge and opportunities. In 2004 NZTE first supported the University of Auckland’s initiative to develop and run a pilot entrepreneurship course. The success of the pilot led the University to develop the Bioscience Enterprise programme, which NZTE continues to support. NZTE will use the IIB office to maintain and develop relationships within the University and companies co-located within the IIB.
