Wellington is the high-tech capital making its mark internationally, with the region having the greatest number of New Zealand’s fastest growing high-tech businesses.

This comes from 2013 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific index which ranks the top 500 technology businesses according to their revenue growth over the past three years and sets the standard for high growth technology businesses in the Asia Pacific region.

The Wellington region has 16 out of the 40 New Zealand companies making the list, with four in the top 100; Alphero leads the Wellington businesses at 22nd place with a growth rate of 1118% for the period; GreenButton is at 24, ENZEC at 69 and OrbitRemit is at 81.

Angela Brownie, Grow Wellington’s General Manager for Business Growth says she can report engagement with 13 out of 16 Wellington companies on the index which is “very pleasing” for the regional economic development agency.

“This latest success places Wellington as the high-tech capital of New Zealand,” Brownie says.

“It’s rewarding to see companies we’ve worked with achieving global scale and becoming competitive to a point where they are keeping up and even out-performing firms, not only from the rest of New Zealand, but from much bigger countries in the Asia Pacific region.”

Other Wellington companies on the index are; OptimalBI (101), Xero (104), Snipesoft (122), BigEars (143), Psoda (206), Freeman Media (212), Carnival Labs (288), Optimal Product (290), Times-7 Research (343), TOUCH/CAST (345), Trio Software (397) and Seekom (474).
