Unraveling our tech story

OurDNA

TechStep is not just a name, it’s in our DNA. We live and breathe tech and we’re on a mission to turn your dreams into a reality.

Powered by the Auckland Business Chamber, in collaboration with the Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, TechStep is your gateway into the world of tech.

At TechStep, we want to inspire people from all backgrounds to pursue tech careers. Māori and Pasifika are underrepresented in the tech industry, with Māori representing only 1% of tech employees, and Pasifika making up just 0.8%. We want to bridge this gap and make tech accessible for all whānau.
