Who made the NZ Hi-Tech Awards finalists list?

More than 40 companies named as finalists in this year's Hi-Tech Awards

Buckley Systems, Serko and Xero are vying for top honours in this year's Hi-Tech Awards.

The three companies were named as finalists in the PwC Hi-Tech Company of the Year 2013, along with finalists in 11 other award categories, yesterday evening.

Now in their 19th year, the awards are run by the New Zealand Hi-Tech Trust, a not for profit organisation aimed at promoting and supporting the technology industry. Organisers say there was a record number of entrants from companies across New Zealand. 

“This year’s finalists range from companies in their infancy through to some of our biggest and most high profile hi-tech companies. New Zealand technology companies have a unique flavour that extends well beyond the realms of traditional ICT. It is great to see such a range of entries across the board and so many companies entering who are just embarking on their big journey,” says Wayne Norrie, chair of the Hi-Tech Trust.

This year’s 12- member international judging line-up includes Apple founder Steve Wozniak; Craig Nevill-Manning, director of engineering for Google in New York; and Howard Charney, senior vice president for Cisco.

Winners in each category will be announced at a black-tie gala dinner to be held at SkyCity in Auckland on 17 May.
