Pushpay was first in the world to provide credit and collections help for churches and charities.  Combining hi-tech with an innovative business model, they quickly gained impressive traction both locally and in the United States.

PwC Partner Owen Gibson said “Pushpay is a truly great example of nimble, fast-moving Kiwi innovation.”

The Hi-Tech Awards judges commented that the calibre of this year’s entrants was at all-time high, making the job of selecting winners across the 13 award categories exceedingly challenging.

A record breaking 910 people attended the gala dinner held at the Viaduct Events Centre in Auckland. Now in its 23rd year, the New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards celebrate the success of New Zealand’s producers of goods and services from the software, electronics, telecommunications, mobile, agritech, creative and other hi-tech industries.

PwC Partner Scott Kerse said “PwC is very proud to support New Zealand’s growing tech sector, and the achievements of some fantastic hi-tech companies.”

The gala dinner also marked the unveiling of the 2017 Flying Kiwi, Frances Valintine, founder and Chair of the MindLab by Unitec and recent founder of the Tech Futures Lab.
