The Summer of Tech (SoT) story

Summer of Tech was founded by a group of startups in Wellington’s Creative HQ in 2006. We help IT businesses get their hands on the best students for summer internships. It remains an industry led initiative focussed on meeting the real needs of students and employers looking for growth.

Summer of Tech changed its name from Summer of Code in 2010 to reflect the evolving nature of the students and employers we are working with. Initially focussed on internships for people who write code, Summer of Tech has grown to include many more areas of technology and innovation.

We are grateful for the ongoing support from all our sponsors and partners, and also to the many volunteers who give up their time and share their knowledge and expertise. Thank you!
