NZTech is continuing to work on raising the awareness of the importance of technology for Aotearoa’s sustainability response. Tomorrow, I am hosting a Zoom session for members discussing the potential for a Technology Roadmap for Emissions Reduction, with NZTech Chair Mitchell Pham and Mark Thomas from Serviceworks. Next week, we are visiting Minister Woods to discuss the role of the energy sector and the Research, Science and Innovation (RSI) system in our proposed technology roadmap for emissions reduction.
As part of our ongoing support of New Zealand’s Tech Story, We See Tomorrow First, we are joining New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) and NZ Story to provide free workshops. These begin during Techweek22 and show companies how to use the Tech Story toolkit. If you’re looking for talent, need to raise funds or want to sell more, sharing the story about your business is essential. Register for our first workshops on 17 May in Waikato, 26 May in Tairāwhiti, 15 June in Auckland and 21 June in Dunedin.
