Auckland’s growth agency, Auckland Tourism, Events, and Economic Development (ATEED) supports the generation of quality jobs for all Aucklanders, to help create a future of inclusive prosperity and opportunity.
Auckland’s tech sector is driving our region’s economic growth; home to almost half of New Zealand’s tech firms and labour force, contributing nearly $8 billion a year in gross domestic product (GDP) and supporting more than 47,000 jobs. ATEED works to stimulate tech entrepreneurship, as Auckland strives to become a major innovation hub of the Asia-Pacific.
“ATEED is thrilled to sponsor the Hi-Tech Creative Technology Solution award as a platform to amplify Auckland’s world-leading creative technology and the people behind it. The creative sector is an important growth sector for Auckland, employing more than 30,000 people and generating billions of dollars annually. The intersection of creativity and technology presents a wonderful opportunity for leadership, innovation and the future of Auckland’s young people, and we’re excited to see the inspiring Hi-Tech Awards entries.”
