Earlier this year NZTech’s Techweek team did an amazing job creating a platform bringing together 287 independent tech and innovation events across 24 towns and cities, reaching tens of thousands of people. Techweek is used to inspire the next generation into being innovative with technology, build tech capability of our SME’s, develop capability of our next world leading tech firms and showcase our best innovations to the world.
For Techweek’18 (diarise the dates; 19-26 May) NZTech has created a joint venture with the Trans-Tasman Business Circle hosting a series of international delegations to New Zealand. While we develop the Upstart Nation – Innovation Ecosystem Tour, please consider anyone you know overseas who you could encourage to visit New Zealand in May. Entrepreneurs wondering what it is like to work from New Zealand? Investors looking for new and novel innovations in AgTech, CleanTech, Space, GovTech, CreativeTech and more? Organisations that would like a deep dive into New Zealand’s innovation ecosystem? Full information will be available late August.
Having recently completed the wrap-up of ShadowTech Day it was great to see that we were able to encourage 500 school girls across New Zealand to view tech related careers in a new and positive light. Check out what mentors and students had to say in our ShadowTech Day video.
Enjoy your week.
