Kiwi Connect is bringing together global impact ventures in New Zealand.
Wellington offers the ability to access world-class infrastructure and connections, without all the traffic and noise. The city has a thriving technology sector, and has plans to become the high tech capital of the Asia Pacific region. Many tech companies already base themselves in the city, including the hugely successful accountancy software firm Xero.
You’ll find a better cost of living, more family-friendly atmosphere, and majestic natural beauty at every turn. The city lies around the edge of the harbour, with a rich natural heritage in the hills that surround the central city. The Wellington Town Belt is a protected series of forest reserves and green space that have ensured a green corridor virtually from one end of the city to the other.
Lonely Planet dubbed Wellington the “Coolest Little Capital in the World”, and it’s a nickname that has stuck, for good reason. With world-class dining, vibrant nightlife and more cafes per capita than New York, Wellington is a compact city where you will find yourself walking between meetings.
Film Capital of New Zealand
Wellington is home to a world-class film sector, which includes Weta Digital, one of the global film industry’s top visual effects companies. With blockbusters such as Avatar, King Kong and the Lord of the Rings to their name, Weta has pushed the edge of what’s possible by embracing the latest software and IT in its visual creations. This international powerhouse brings valuable talent, money, connections, and reputation to the New Zealand film community.
The suburb of Miramar is a bustling hub of film-makers, designers, artists and developers that support the New Zealand’s film industry. It’s a great place to raise a family, with good schools and quiet neighbourhoods.
