Where it all began

All Good Ventures is a registered family charity founded by New Zealand-based Americans Heather and Rod Claycomb. Both successful businesspeople themselves, the Claycombs launched All Good Ventures in 2018. Spurred on by their Christian faith, their heart behind the charity is to see people freed from deprivation through others’ clever business ideas.
Listen to their story.

Our founders

Rod and Heather are originally from Pennsylvania USA, but have lived in Hamilton New Zealand for more than 20 years. Their entrepreneurial careers began in Colorado where Rod was employed with a start-up organisation while Heather started her first communications consultancy. In the late 90s Rod was recruited to work in New Zealand and soon thereafter became managing director of a new biotech venture. To this day, his entrepreneurial journey continues through his own company, Quantec. After moving to New Zealand, Heather held several jobs in PR and marketing before starting her own successful PR agency in 2004, HMC. Both Heather and Rod grew up in strong Christian families and their faith is the driving force behind All Good Ventures.

Our organisation

All Good Ventures is a registered New Zealand Charity (CC56351). In 2018 our founders formed All Good Ventures LP (limited liability partnership). All Good Ventures LP has as one of its partner organisations, All Good Foundation Trust, which is charitable partner. Forming an LP allows us to partner with other charitable organisations under the All Good Ventures LP umbrella from across the world when opportunities arise. This special legal structure also allows our partners to come and go as projects begin and end.
