Aotearoa New Zealand is known for its agricultural output and tremendous sporting achievements, along with humanitarian work globally. However outside of our tech bubble, our tech industry is relatively unknown. How do we ensure that we highlight the role and importance of tech so as to keep our talent at home to drive success?
