The covid pandemic cannot stop the substantial growth in New Zealand tech investments, says Daily Encourager. NZTech chief executive Graeme Muller says investor confidence is at an all-time high, and the growing number and variety of capital raises over the past couple of years is demonstrating the growth and maturity of the NZ tech sector. Muller says these investments in New Zealand tech firms are a sign of a healthy and growing domestic tech ecosystem, but he adds a warning: “The one sticking issue is the border settings, which unfortunately create a situation where quite a bit of this funding will have to be used to create jobs overseas rather than new jobs in New Zealand.”
