Kia ora koutou,

Meri Kirihimete! As we come to the end of 2023, this TINWire is a check-up on healthtech. We’ve gathered together commentary from key healthtech companies on the year’s highs and lows: Fisher & PaykelDouglasOrion, and AFT.

But first, a little data stocking-stuffer. As the visualisation below shows, the growth of the tech sector over the past ten years is largely due to the stratospheric growth of firms with over $200m in revenue. As these giants expand, they pull the centre of gravity of the ecosystem upwards, prompting greater growth for all. The critical mass of expertise, global connections, and capital created by the titan firms spawns exciting spinoff start-ups and scale-ups. The median firm revenue in the TIN200 has increased in the last decade from $13.6m to $26.8m.



For almost two decades now TIN has tailed the country’s tech trailblazers. Next year will be our 20th report and we have lots of exciting plans to showcase our longitudinal data. In this time, NZ’s tech sector has spawned nine unicorns, 34 firms with revenue over $100m, 9,315 start-ups, and some 36,800 new local jobs. If this trajectory continues, we’ll see the TIN200 collective revenue topping $28B in five short years.


Wishing you all a wonderful summer break and we look forward to working with you in 2024 to make this projection a reality.
