TINWire Tech News Roundup: 15 December 20

Kia ora koutou

2020 will go down in the history books as a year to remember, and quite possibly one that many would prefer to forget. Many of our country’s tech businesses have had to dig deep in order to find opportunities to grow and survive. Two of those companies –Serko and Pushpay – were profiled in a recent news report, discussing the learnings they took from past crises, and the importance of  having a digital strategy, crisis planning, providing solutions for their customers, and looking after staff at all costs.

This year at TIN, we’ve relished analysing some of the tech secondary sectors in greater detail. Our inaugural HealthTech Insights Report, launched in April, took on a new relevance and resonance in the face of COVID-19, as now more than ever, the world needs effective solutions to big health problems. Similarly, our first-ever Agritech Insights Report, launched as part of Fieldays Online in July, showed the breadth of exciting opportunities for agritech to leverage the experience of the wider tech sector.

In 2021, we look forward to continuing to analyse the tech secondary sectors in greater detail. The key phrase that has resonated with me throughout this year is this: We may not have all the answers, but we do have purpose. In the midst of this difficult year, and certainly for the years ahead, TIN’s purpose has never been clearer to me than it is now – that is, to help facilitate the growth of the technology sector in New Zealand.

While the digital edition has been available for some weeks, today we were pleased to send out the print editions of the 2020 TIN Report. If you haven’t ordered yours yet, be sure to do so ASAP so you can receive your copy before the break. It makes for some great holiday reading!

This is our last TINWire for 2020, so together with the TIN team, we’d like to wish you a happy and joyful festive season. Have a peaceful and relaxing break, enjoying some much-deserved time out with family and friends, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2021.

Ngā mihi
