innovateHQ is proud to announce the acquisition of the NZ Innovation Council and the NZ Innovation Awards from KPMG Enterprise New Zealand.

For the past 8 years, NZIC has run a series of successful events and expanded into a passionate community of over 3,500 members. After KPMG made the decision to no longer move forward with the awards this year, our team believed it was the perfect opportunity for us to proactively take the lead with new ownership of the NZ Innovation Council, reach out to key players like the NZ Hi-Tech AwardsNZTechCallaghan Innovationand try to make a genuine play to bring more of our amazing ecosystem closer together.

We believe NOW is the time for everyone to work together smarter, so we can start to simplify our VERY complex and cluttered space!

Along with KPMG’s continued support as a lead partner, the team at innovateHQ are all super excited for this next phase of where we want to take innovateHQ - with a very simple goal of ‘Helping Kiwis Win in Business’.

Our OpenForGrowth.co.nz campaign last week, was our first step in helping Kiwis win in business.   

We look forward to sharing more soon!
