Vodafone further expanded its global business accelerator programme this week with the launch of the Vodafone xone innovation hub in Christchurch. Ten kiwi tech businesses have been chosen as the original participants, operating in a number of diverse industries from drones to IoT data. Vodafone xone will support this Kiwi tech talent through providing the participants with funding, mentoring and the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment in a new, specialised facility.  Technology businesses from outside the Vodafone xone programme will also be able to to use the state of the art facilities.

Vodafone's decision to base the xone in Christchurch, and build a $50 million headquarters there, provides extra stimulation to the Christchurch re-build.

The team at Hudson Gavin Martin is proud to have helped Vodafone with implementing Vodafone xone, and is also excited to see a number of its clients accepted into the programme. We look forward to seeing the results!
