TINWire Tech News Roundup: 8 April 21

Kia ora koutou.

The Easter break was a good time to draw breath and reflect on what has been an interesting but challenging first quarter of the year.

We were privileged to hear some economic insights from BNZ’s Chief Economist, Paul Conway, at a recent TIN Member event. According to Paul, the best way to predict our economic future beyond the next year or so, is to create it.

Tech companies are continuing to lead the way in growth and innovation with Xero acquiring Swedish e-invoicing company Tickstar; Serko reporting that volumes in its online travel bookings are trending upwards; UBCO stating its vision of having an electric utility vehicle on every farm in New Zealand; and Rocket Lab launching its 18th orbital mission.

All this investment success is a reminder to save the date for the launch of TIN’s 2021 Investor's Guide to the NZ Tech Sector, from 5pm on May 27th at Techweek. More information, registration details, and an official announcement of our stellar panel coming soon.

And with the trans-Tasman travel bubble now announced to come into effect on April 19th, we have further buoyancy to look forward to in all areas of our economy. Onwards and upwards through the second quarter of this year!
