Creative HQ

“We enable bright people to build brilliant businesses by nourishing entrepreneurial talent and driving innovation.” – Creative HQ

Founded in 2003, Wellington-based startup incubator and accelerator Creative HQ run programmes for entrepreneurs of all levels – startups, corporate businesses and government agencies.

Creative HQ also run the “Lightning Lab”, a three-month accelerator programme for digital startup ventures in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington.

Chapman Tripp offers Creative HQ legal advice, with this partnership extending to current programme attendees and Creative HQ alumni.

​“There are many benefits to Chapman Tripp from our Creative HQ partnership: we get to work with startups and entrepreneurs; our people get the opportunity to work in the fast-paced and creative startup sector; we get to learn more about the attributes that are important to startup businesses and how we can better achieve our NZ Inc goals; and we get to enjoy developing personal relationships with Creative HQ team members.”
