TINWire Tech News Round Up: 5 March 18

Ashley Hibbard Tech News, TIN News 0 Comments

International interest in the NZ technology sector continues to grow as evidenced by the recent acquisition of BBC Technologies. Started in a tin shed in Ohaupo in 2000, and first appearing at 72nd place on the TIN200 back in 2014, its purchase this week for NZD67m by Norwegian giant TOMRA (who also purchased TIN company Compac Sorting Equipment back in 2016) is further proof that NZ’s agritech sector – with its pipeline of further exciting early stage companies – really is world class! 
 
BBC Technologies founder Geoff Furniss is a panellist at our forthcoming TINShed event on “Founder Exits – To Sell or Not to Sell” being held in Auckland on Thursday, March 22nd.

Happy reading!

All the best,
Greg & the TIN Team
