AmixTech Expands Strategic Acceleration Programme to New Zealand

AmixTech Lab, the renowned technology business accelerator, is excited to announce the inclusion of New Zealand in its Strategic Acceleration Programme. This expansion aims to scale up founders, startups and companies in specialising sectors such as AgTech, WineTech, FinTech, FoodTech and ClimaTech. Spearheading this initiative is a multidisciplinary team led by Max Morales, with the support of London-based PR and business consultant Fran Bridgewater FCIM.

The programme’s primary objective is to foster collaboration with New Zealand companies aiming to penetrate the Chilean and Texan markets by leveraging AmixTech’s extensive network. Another key goal is to expand AmixTech’s talent base in London, enabling the creation of bespoke strategies for business development.

Strategic focuses include Dairy, High Tech, Agricultural Machinery and Wine, providing Chilean companies with access to cutting-edge innovative practices from New Zealand. AmixTech also plans to connect with New Zealand’s vibrant startup ecosystem by engaging with local incubators, accelerators and hubs to facilitate market entry into Chile and Texas.

The origins of the collaboration between New Zealand and Chile can be traced back to a number of years ago when Isabel Estate participated in the Wine Salon at Colchagua Valley, organised by Max Morales, CEO of This event laid the foundations for a robust connection between the two countries.

Why Chile and New Zealand?

Eva Pemper, a third-generation winemaker from Croatia now leading the field in New Zealand, has received widespread acclaim for her wines in both the US and across Europe. She serves as a mentor to Max Morales and her expertise is instrumental in bridging the connections with local wine producers, fostering a new phase of technological exchange based on the climatic and soil similarities between the two countries.

Max Morales, who has 23 years of experience in the re-establishment of old vineyards in Chile, recently concluded the ‘Wine Innova Tech 2024’ seminar series at the Palacio Rioja in Viña del Mar. Supported by the Regional Productive Development Committee of Valparaíso through the Viraliza CORFO program, this initiative aims to boost the creation of the WineTech Investment Fund.

In terms of context, Morales founded AmixTech Lab as a spin-off from Andes Wines in 2017, creating a platform to accelerate startups and their founders. This initiative led to the creation of the Hub Texas LatAm, partnering with professionals from Texas, Mexico and London to focus on innovative strategies in BioTech, AgTech, TravelTech, FinTech and PropTech sectors.

During his tenure at CORFO, Chile’s innovation agency, Morales managed the Strategic Node Program Chilevitivinicola 2.0 covering regions from Maule to Aysen. He also undertook Business Development and PR Media Management for new ventures in the Start-Up Chile portfolio, including notable startups like Alfi, Chaty, Sonic Drops, IM Packing, PortalTerreno, MundoCard, Roier, NotCo, Rukann, TRYPO and Revogreen (Texas).

Over the past two years, AmixTech’s strategic partnerships have seamlessly embedded it into the thriving ecosystems of Latin America, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, New York City, California, and London.
