IT & TECH BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES

Go Wireless equipmentThere is a steady push of fibre into the region, providing fast and consistent internet connections. In 2016 Spark rolled out 4G to many of the rural areas in North Canterbury. This fast expansion of internet connectivity makes the area even more attractive to businesses.   

Working from North Canterbury avoids the lost time spent commuting to the city and offers an attractive lifestyle for potential employees. There are cafes, bars and easily accessible outdoor activities and spaces that allow the freedom of thought and creative space required by many in the tech industry.

In addition, access to excellent preschools and a high proportion of decile 9 and 10 schools, make this an attractive location for families. 

If you’re an IT or technology company looking to set up or move to North Canterbury, contact Enterprise North Canterbury for information and resources on everything from fibre availability to premises.
