Established nearly 20 years ago, the Technology Investment Network (TIN) is the leading independent source of information on New Zealand’s technology sector.

The annual TIN100 Report, looks at the economic significance of New Zealand’s globally focused technology industry by capturing key data on the country’s top 200, revenue earning, high-tech companies and reporting analysis on the 600+ companies surveyed each year. These companies combined generated a record breaking 10 billion in revenue in the past year.

Economic Development Minister Simon Bridges says “The report highlights the increasingly important contribution that innovative hi-tech companies make to New Zealand, with the collective export revenues of the 200 largest tech companies now earning more than $7.3 billion in export revenues,”

The TIN100 Report is launched each year with an awards ceremony. This years’ event held at St Matthews in the City on October 17th, was opened by Communications and Information Technology Minster Steven Joyce, and melon took out the Best Early Stage Company Award. Our Ruthy was there to accept the award.

Other award winners included Pushpay, Whanau Tahi , Datacom and Promap, amongst others. It’s always inspiring to see other NZ companies doing so well and motivating for early stage companies like melon to continue to grow by helping people help themselves and lead healthier, happier lives.
