The Innovation as a Service proposition was born out of the government banking tender process, and is a joint partnership between Westpac NZ and the New Zealand Government. The innovation fund is delighted to become a foundational partner and to help support the NZ Innovation Council/awards. The IaaS fund is all about helping to drive innovation outcomes in government so that New Zealanders can interact more easily with them and in turn and grow and thrive. We see this new partnership as a fantastic way to connect and collaborate with great New Zealand companies, institutions and individuals driving innovative outcomes that will shape our future.
