Celebrating New Zealand tech innovation
The New Zealand technology sector is booming. According to the New Zealand Technology Industry Association, technology is the largest economic sector in New Zealand and is the highest earning per-capita.
The 2017 NZ High-Tech Awards, taking place this May in Auckland, is the “New Zealand technology industries most important celebration of success and a wonderful showcase for our innovation and talent,” according to Wayne Norrie, Chair of the Hi-Tech Trust.
Entries this year were at an all time high; there were 30% more applications compared to last year! Many start-ups and young entrepreneurs are also in the running to receive an award at the Gala. Finalists were announced last week; soon a panel of local and international judges will select the winners.
Some of the different categories include: Xero Hi-Tech Young Achiever, Qual IT Best technology for the Public Sector, Duncan Cotterill Innovative Hi-Tech Software Product, and more.
