The Digital Industry Forum Cluster group proactively works together with a shared vision of a Smart Waikato through Digital Revolution. 

  • We connect local companies to enable collaboration, knowledge sharing, and innovation. 
  • We create a global launch pad for our members to drive growth in revenue and export opportunities. 
  • We want to attract major global technology players who recognise and are inspired by our stories of innovation and success. 
  • Ultimately we want the Waikato to be known as a smart connected community creating new jobs and attracting more highly skilled workers.

Through our collective approach we believe we can achieve substantially more than any single company can.  The resulting global exposure will provide value for our members and will create a positive perception of the Waikato as a sought after place for highly skilled entrepreneurs, creatives and technologists to live and work.
