The Investor’s Guide was launched by Steven Joyce, Minister for Economic Development, on 8 September.

The Guide aims to highlight New Zealand’s technology sector, provide information on the country’s leading technology companies and present a case for domestic and international investment in the sector. It was prepared by Technology Investment Network (TIN) for MBIE using the data TIN has collected on New Zealand’s top 200 tech firms (by revenue)”.
