Kiwi Landing Pad is all about solving problems for New Zealand startups, helping them focus on building great export ready businesses. We noticed a lot of Kiwi tech companies build on Amazon Web Services, so we partnered with them to provide the resources you need to get started on AWS.
Being an Amazon Activate Partner, we’re pleased to offer Kiwi companies that are part of the Kiwi Landing Pad community $10K AWS credits and $5K tech support.
To apply for the program:
There are no conditions to apply. However, if you’ve already been allocated/used this volume of credits you won’t be able to apply through this link. If this is the case, your application will have to be reviewed on a case by case analysis.

There are lots of questions when establishing your business, and most don’t have black and white answers. We know these are serious decisions you’re making, and believe that the bureaucracy of business shouldn’t be a roadblock. We want to arm you with the tools that you need to get your company’s foundation right, so you can focus on the important stuff. This is why we’re proud to partner with Stripe, to bring you access to Stripe Atlas.
Stripe Atlas is one of Stripe’s newer products; the platform allows you to set up in the US, both as a Delaware C-Corporation or as an LLC. They also allow you to open a business bank account with Silicon Valley bank, and open a Stripe account immediately. Now, you’ll never need to leave your garage or coffee shop in New Zealand to have a full US entity and bank account; something no other company in the world offers.
In addition to this, Stripe has built a full suite of tools around post-incorporation. The legal entity and bank account is not where it ends, so they make sure early-day legal, tax and accounting processes can be managed through the platform. With Stripe Atlas you do everything from issue founder stock, to sort your corporate and Delaware franchise taxes. Stripe also partners with legal and accounting firms to provide straightforward advice for a much reduced cost, and tools like Gusto and Xero to provide straightforward advice and a well-lit path as you think about the necessary post-incorporation steps.
There are also the Stripe Atlas guides, which are a series of ‘encyclopedia entries’ to help you understand exactly what you need to do as you’re thinking about everything from hiring, to paying your taxes, to incorporation. This set of guides is available free to anyone here.
Being an entrepreneur is hard but access to tools is not. That’s why we’re proud to partner with Stripe to bring you the tools you need to grow great global businesses.
