Technology Valley Forum (TVF) is an independent organisation that supports and facilitates the promotion, collaboration, engagement, and development of the community of innovators within Technology Valley. We aim to connect the dots, providing opportunities for people and clusters within this community to meet and share ideas. We also connect this Hutt Valley based community to the many supports available to them, identifying possible opportunities for assistance, advice, promotion, and other supportive initiatives that might help smooth their path to success.


We're big fans of celebrating excellence and sharing success, and promote local people, innovations, and ideas by curating stories from our network and sharing them with the world.


If you want to be part of this forward thinking, connected, and inspired community join us at our next meetup or connect with us now.
