Improved access to technology, expertise, advice, support and services will enable our people, businesses and communities to live, work and thrive in a sustainable, and resilient digital world.
So, let’s achieve this. Collaborating across government and in the business sector means we can brainstorm, coordinate and amplify our efforts to drive productivity, wellbeing and social inclusion in a way that benefits everyone- because when you look at the big picture you see that we’re all in this together
The Alliance was established to help members develop commitments that will collectively drive digital acceleration in Aotearoa. The website gives members an opportunity to communicate their commitments to businesses and individuals, and to work together as a group helping to bridge the digital divide.
Regular workshops are facilitated by the Alliance and feature people who are experts in areas that have been identified as priorities. These voluntary workshops are designed to encourage members to share ideas and knowledge and make recommendations to the Governance Group for consideration.
Members devote their time and effort to the Alliance and provide joint financial support to ensure the programme is successful. The Governance Group sets the appropriate membership investment to ensure it is accessible, and ensures that the joint efforts are well funded and successful.
Alliance members are not required to disclose any commercially sensitive information prior to public announcements of any such initiatives.
The Digital Boost Alliance Board is a team of experienced, talented and diverse professionals whose mission is to help businesses and individuals across Aotearoa lift their use of digital technologies.
The Board consists of eight members representing the following sectors:
Professional and administrative support for the Board is provided by the Technology Users Association of New Zealand (TUANZ) and the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE).
The Governance Board will meet twice a year and is responsible for the strategic direction of the Alliance as well as agreeing to any major initiatives to meet the vision. It will oversee the membership model and provide financial oversight to the operations of the Alliance.
