Passionate about growth

NZRise is about passion. The passion our member firms have for innovation and growth of the proudly New Zealand-owned digital market.

NZ-owned businesses

We focus on fair treatment for NZ-owned companies. This means keeping New Zealand money in New Zealand and government not giving special attention to offshore interests.

Promoting NZ interests

We believe that the weightless economy of the digital industry is the key to New Zealand’s future growth. It’s the biggest lever we as a nation can pull. We must innovate better so we can thrive in the globally competitive 21st century digital landscape.
