Tech Week 2018
May 19, 2018 - May 27, 2018
The intention behind Techweek is simple – New Zealand’s technology and innovation sectors are growing rapidly, and Techweek fosters that growth by providing the national ecosystem with a week-long opportunity for connection and cross-pollination, and an independent platform through which to amplify New Zealand’s unique and inspiring innovation stories to the world.
In the years to come, Techweek’s vision is for New Zealand to be globally recognised as a beautiful country where world-leading solutions are born. It’s not just about showcasing leading edge technology, but amplifying brilliant ideas that are solving the biggest global challenges – innovation that’s good for the world.
After getting on board with Techweek’17, the government’s lead business-facing agency the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is back this year as our principal sponsor. MBIE’s goal is to grow New Zealand for all – a great fit with Techweek’s ‘innovation that’s good for the world’ theme.
MBIE is investing in Techweek’18 to promote the New Zealand tech sector internationally to grow exports from New Zealand tech sector firms, raise New Zealand’s international profile with investors and skilled tech professionals, increase the uptake of ICT across all firms in order to improve productivity, develop the capability needed to support continued tech sector growth and raise awareness of the need for greater ICT skills and a ‘tech- savvy culture’ with all New Zealanders.
