Creative HQ, Wellington’s startup base, has secured a three-year partnership with Chapman Tripp to provide a range of services to it and its startups.
Since 2003, Creative HQ has supported and mentored hundreds of entrepreneurs as they build startup ideas into global businesses.
There are many legal procedures involved in starting and growing a company that are unfamiliar to new entrepreneurs says Creative HQ CE Stefan Korn.
“We are delighted to work with Chapman Tripp as this partnership allows us to offer New Zealand’s highest calibre legal services to our startups to ensure their businesses run smoothly at all stages of growth.”
Chapman Tripp people will also provide mentoring to Creative HQ startups, seminars on key startup matters such as contracts, IP and governance, as well as possible participation on advisory boards.
Chapman Tripp’s managing partner Andrew Poole says: ”Chapman Tripp is looking forward to embarking on this new relationship with Creative HQ.
“We are dedicated to playing an active role within the communities in which we work. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility programme, we provide specialist skills and time, as well as financial support, to help organisations like Creative HQ grow and develop New Zealand businesses locally and internationally”.
