HP Supports New Zealand Innovation

HP Supports New Zealand Innovation Through Investment Regatta 2003

AUCKLAND, January 28, 2003 - HP New Zealand has partnered with Investment New Zealand and the Technology Investment Network to bring prominent international business leaders and Kiwi innovators to the Investment Regatta 2003 in Auckland next month.

The Regatta, organised by Investment New Zealand, will provide a forum for international and local investors to explore opportunities for partnerships and investment in a growing wealth of Kiwi innovation.

It will also showcase exemplary Kiwi businesses while a number of the world's wealthiest and most influential people are in Auckland for the America's Cup 2003.

Russell Hewitt, Managing Director HP New Zealand is excited about what this event means for New Zealand business. "We believe that New Zealanders possess the know-how and the 'can-do' attitude that turn great ideas and technologies into innovation and global business opportunities. The Investment Regatta 2003 allows us to continue our commitment to the evolution of Kiwi innovation and excellence," he says. HP New Zealand already assists local initiatives like The Icehouse, an Auckland-based business incubator, and the Technology Investment Network, which support dozens of New Zealand start-up companies each year. HP also works with NZ ICT companies to open up offshore opportunities. Russell Hewitt is confident about the future of New Zealand's brightest business stars. "With great ideas, technology and people, everything is possible", he says.
