Dunedin is the 2nd largest city on the South Island sitting in the Otago region of New Zealand. For growing tech businesses it gives you the best of all worlds with high-speed Internet, reasonable housing rents, a university pumping out top graduates, low commute times, a growing startup community and the space to breath, giving you the perfect work-life balance. The impressive thing about Dunedin's tech scene is the fact that there is a lot of collaboration between different companies and plenty of meetups and conferences to attend so that you can totally immerse yourself in the burgeoning scene.
With its Scottish heritage, the city never misses a chance to break out with the bagpipes and the haggis when celebrating and the city even has its own tartan. It is the Southermost city in the world where you can literally go surfing and skiing in the same day. It has some cute locals, which includes the world's rarest penguin (the yellow-eyed penguin) plus other creatures such as sea lions, fur seals and little blue penguins. The city showcases not just its Scottish heritage, but its Maori culture as well and it is awash in buzzing students and bars plus Victorian and Edwardian architecture.
Dunedin's diverse economy includes manufacturing, tourism, publishing and technology based industries and in 2014 it was designated as a UNESCO City of Literature.
For the outdoor enthusiast, it is an adventure playground with hiking and cycling trails crossing the stunning landscape of the Otago Peninsula where you can chat to an albatross rather than have your head stuck in your laptop in a coworking space.
