Positive feedback to-date regarding the need for a compelling Tech Story. Activation and uptake by the Industry will be key to the success. Investor and Talent themes have been highlighted as priority campaign audiences for further validation.
Potential funding themes
Funding for year one has been approved by MBIE. Funding for ongoing activation of the story has not been secured as yet.
We consider it critical that our communications ensure buy-in and support across sectors and industry groups as we educate that tech is a horizontal not a sector/vertical story
