NZ taking the lead in emerging global GovTech market
An economy with the perfect size and scale for growing innovations
A collective of professionals have launched GovTech World, a self-assembled community that believes New Zealand has what it takes to lead the emerging global GovTech market.
The global GovTech sector is already estimated to be worth in excess of USD$400b per annum with a unique ‘triple bottom-line’ opportunity back to an economy for those countries embracing GovTech as a means to transforming both central and local Governments.
New Zealand has a developing body of third party evidence supporting New Zealand’s inherent leadership in GovTech; Fletcher School of Tufts University, OECD E-leaders Group, D5, and World Bank recognition.
Co-creator Nick Gerritsen “We believe that ‘GovTech’ is New Zealand’s differentiator within the digital economy and provides significant domestic and export opportunities for New Zealand businesses and innovators.”
New Zealand already has a head start having ‘in play’ many of the supporting functions needed to enable a GovTech eco-system here in New Zealand.
Gerritsen also says “that there is a direct correlation between climate change mitigation and the digital economy, so the expressed aspiration to lead on the former also triggers the broader digital leadership opportunity.”
The collective has launched www.govtechworld.com as the portal for New Zealand Inc to self-assemble and organise itself. It is a Public/ Private ‘go to’ space – and everyone is welcome.
