Southern Lens - A different Silicon Valley

by Kim Bowden - Apr 01, 2021

There’s been talk for over two decades of the Southern Lakes becoming NZ’s Silicon Valley. But now it’s happening – for real.

So, what does this new economy look like – and are we at risk from some of the negative effects of Silicon Valley, an ecosystem that is far from perfect?

Crux journalist Kim Bowden discovers that the real story is even more exciting than the dream – and NZ’s version of tech heaven may well be different to, and an improvement on, the US original.
