Mapping the Māori Tech Sector in 2023

MEA, in collaboration with the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi, and NZTech, delivered the report 'Mapping the Māori Tech Sector 2023 Report' alongside a concise summary of over 30 interviews with indigenous tech entrepreneurs sharing their reflections, challenges and hopes for the future of technology and Māori communities.

He tākoha - mō koutou - mā mātou - mō ngā uri whakaheke. A gift for you, by us, for our future generations.

This report delves into the dynamic landscape of Māori Technology in 2023, aiming to unravel how Māori practitioners, workers, and business owners incorporate Mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) into their work. The report sheds light on the profound impact this integration has on their learning experiences and professional journeys within Aotearoa New Zealand. Conducted over an extensive 12-month period, this research showcases the insights gleaned from over 30 Māori tech practitioners.
