Company profile

Concentrate was formed in 2004, and has become New Zealand’s premier marketing consultancy for the technology sector. We’ve worked with the country’s top technology brands, many clever start-ups and early stage firms, as well as Universities and other research organisations.

The technology firms we’ve helped find market success have featured on the covers of the New York Times and Time Magazine, been sold to multinational technology giants, launched on stock markets and won numerous awards.

We also partner with New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE), to understand what attributes New Zealand’s highest performing tech companies share, published each year in our Market Measures study.

As a HubSpot Diamond Certified Agency Partner, Concentrate is also a key agency for HubSpot in Asia-Pacific and is bringing huge benefits to the sales and marketing programmes of Kiwi technology companies.
