TINWire: Tech News Round Up November 2023

28 November 2023

Kia ora koutou,

The 2023 TIN Report is out now! Discover the very latest data on the NZ tech ecosystem by purchasing an ebook here. Hard copies will be sent out a week from today.

The report is rich in detail and insights: among them, fintech has surpassed healthtech for the first time as the highest grossing tech subsector, reaching $2.8B in revenue. One in every six dollars captured by NZ’s 200 largest tech firms is earned by a fintech. The sector will be the subject of a dedicated report in early 2024 – reach out to be part of this exciting project.


The other headline from this year’s report is that North America is quickly closing in on Australia as the most lucrative tech market for the TIN200: revenue in this market has grown almost 20% since last year. 

Tech has cemented its position as the country’s second-largest offshore-earner after dairy. This diversification of the country’s exports– both in terms of products sold and markets targeted – protects New Zealand’s future as we look to build a low-carbon, high-wage economy.

We’re confident that – no matter whether you’re a top CEO or a first-year uni student, a VC investor or an entrepreneur keen to raise capital, in the thick of the industry or an observer from the sidelines – you’ll find value in the 2023 TIN Report. Buy a copy today.
