TINWire Tech News Roundup: 27 May 19

Sarah Gardyne Tech News, TIN News

This past weekend saw the close of another successful TechWeek, now truly nationwide and a great demonstration of the expanding economic growth that the tech sector brings to the regions as part of NZ’s broader economic growth.

We were delighted to host our Series A Success event as part of TechWeek, and it provided us with the perfect backdrop to launch the fourth annual Investor’s Guide to the NZ Technology Sector, produced in conjunction with MBIE. This year’s guide shows that angel, PE and VC investment are at record levels and the success of the sector is making it increasingly attractive to Tier 1 investors, from the US in particular. The sector is benefiting from a borderless economy where access to capital is becoming more global and the return on that capital more attractive. Many thanks to our excellent speakers and panelists for their informative commentary and candid insights – and if you missed it, you can read more about it below.

The 2019 TIN Report survey will be sent to companies this week. We’re widening our reach this year to reflect the surging growth of the NZ tech industry in recent years, and we’re anticipating an increase in the number of companies we survey from 700 to nearly 1,000. Read more about it here.

Happy reading,

Greg & the TIN Team
