Part A Reports


Enterprise Dunedin Activity Report

Department: Enterprise Dunedin





1      The purpose of this report is to update the Economic Development Committee on a selection of Enterprise Dunedin activities to April 2019.


That the Committee:

a)     Notes the Enterprise Dunedin Activity Report.



2      Enterprise Dunedin activity is informed by the 2013-2023 Economic Development Strategy (strategy).  The strategy is underpinned by five themes:

a)     Business vitality – to improve the ease of doing business.

b)     Alliances for innovation – to improve linkages between industry and research.

c)     A hub for skills and talent – to increase retention of graduates, build the skills base and grow migrant numbers.

d)     Linkages beyond our borders – to increase international investment and establish projects with other cities.

e)     A compelling destination – to increase the value of tourism and events and improve the understanding of Dunedin's advantage.

3      The strategy sets out two economic goals:

a)     10,000 extra jobs over 10 years (requiring growth of approximately 2% per annum).

b)     An average of 10,000 of extra income for each person (requiring GDP per capita to rise 2.5% per annum).


Major Projects and Key Focus Areas

Enterprise Dunedin Review – Implementing Recommendations

4      The Enterprise Dunedin review report was released in February. Many of the key recommendations have been implemented or are in progress. In particular:

·           Recruitment of a City Marketing Manager – the process for recruitment began in March and interviews with shortlisted candidates were undertaken on 13 May 2019.

·           A Visit Dunedin stakeholder group has been created to improve engagement with the Tourism Sector, discuss opportunities and share insights. The 14 members include the Motel Association, Hotel General Managers, Dunedin Host, DVML, Dunedin Airport, Otago Chamber of Commerce (i.e. Chamber, retail and tourism representatives), Ara Toi, Economic Development Committee Chairs.

·           Martin Jenkins has been engaged to review Grow Dunedin Partnership governance. A revised structure, for Chair, meeting schedule, membership and function will be given to each of the six Grow Dunedin stakeholders (Council, Otago Chamber of Commerce, Otago Employer Association, University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic and Ngāi Tahu) to take back to their respective governance boards for approval.

·           Sharing insights and information – the DunedinNZ Insights online research and statistics webpage went live in March.

Centre of Digital Excellence

5      On 30 April, Council approved the application to the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) for the development of the Centre of Digital Excellence (CODE) to be in Dunedin. The application is supported by a business case prepared in collaboration with the New Zealand Game Developers Association (NZGDA), local and international gaming companies, the University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic, local secondary schools, Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and other stakeholders.

6      CODE is expected to grow the video game development industry in Dunedin through:

·           supporting local leadership, education, research and innovation and international connections, while also fostering talent, diversity and inclusion;

·           working with the Dunedin start-up ecosystem to enable them to scale up and build capability;

·           focusing on points of difference for Dunedin - particularly in relation to health, education and research strengths;

·           showcasing game development and its application across multiple sectors.

7      The application has been made to Government with a decision likely to be made by the end of June.

Otago Regional Economic Development Framework

8      Enterprise Dunedin continued working with economic development agencies across Otago on a draft Otago Regional Economic Development (ORED) framework. The framework, which is supported by Otago Mayors and Chief Executives, is intended to promote effective collaboration between Otago councils, Ngāi Tahu and local Runaka, and regional and national stakeholders, so that economic development projects and initiatives that can provide multi-district benefits can be identified and progressed.

9      The draft framework is expected to be presented to Otago Mayors in late June.


10    The District Energy System is continuing work to evaluate the feasibility of a new district energy system for central Dunedin. The working group (DCC, University of Otago, Southern DHB, Ministry of Health) has engaged Stantec to develop an indicative business case. The objective is to develop a short-list of potential system options, including fuel/energy source, reticulation system specifications, and overall system size and scalability. Work on the business case began in March, and the final report is expected in July.

11    The 2017/18 Dunedin Energy Study is the fourth annual study on Dunedin’s total energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions. This has been completed by the Centre for Sustainability at the University of Otago.  Results showed a 5% increase in energy use and 6% increase in greenhouse gas emissions over the previous year. The study also revealed that Dunedin is number one nationally in per capita electric vehicle ownership, which was highlighted in local and national press, including One News, Otago Daily Times, and Stuff.

12    Enterprise Dunedin continues to work with ChargeNet and Aurora to progress installation of an EV fast charger on Water St, as approved by Council on 26 March 2019. ChargeNet is currently working on a site plan with an installation date yet to be confirmed.

Enterprise Dunedin Activity Outcomes

13    Enterprise Dunedin’s activities are focused around the Economic Development Strategy themes. The following section provides highlights of some of the key activities and outcomes that have occurred within each activity theme during the past few months.

Business Vitality

Business Relations

14    Attracting investment into the city and fostering job growth are a core part of the Enterprise Dunedin work programme. Key projects from this quarter include:

·           Work with the developers of a 380-unit Grange Lifecare retirement village in Mosgiel, which was granted resource consent in March. Construction will take place in stages over ten years and create between 20-50 subcontractor jobs. Once completed, it will employ up to 80 rest home staff. This is a good example of cross-Council cooperation, with Enterprise Dunedin working with DCC City Planning and Water and Waste Group staff to come to a workable outcome with the developer on a long-term project with good employment potential.

·           Continuing efforts with another developer seeking to build a 13,500 m2 factory, which could lead to the creation of around 80 jobs. Enterprise Dunedin is assisting with working through required regulatory processes.

Business Clinic

15    There were 40 referrals to the Enterprise Dunedin business clinics during the July 2018 to April 2019 period. The range and proportion of participating industries is outlined below:

16    Recent successes from engagement with the business clinic service include:

·           a high-end music repair business confirming its relocation from Sydney to Dunedin;

·           an enterprise that specialises in motion capture suits for game developers and filmmakers relocating from Auckland to Dunedin.

Alliances for Innovation

Film Dunedin

17    Film permits issued for the period April 2018 to March 2019 were slightly up, with 39 permits issued compared to 37 for the previous year.

18    Of note is that the total number of location shoot days increased, due to productions having a longer average duration – for example, during the March 2019 quarter there were 50 screen shoot days, up from 18.6 during the March 2018 quarter.

19    An analysis of the origin of the productions over the past year shows that 41% were Dunedin productions, 28% were other New Zealand productions and 31% were international productions.

20    International productions are typically of a much larger scale than New Zealand productions with each employing three to four times the number of crew, on average, compared to a typical New Zealand production.

A Hub for Skills and Talent

Start-up Dunedin

21    Startup Dunedin has expanded its engagement. Event attendees totalled 1,125 over the March 2019 year, up 36% from a year earlier.

22    Individual programmes are performing close to capacity. For example, there were 72 entries in the Challenger series, of which 20 pitches were reviewed and three were selected for incubation. All three incubatees are going well.

23    More Startups are generating real income. During the March 2019 year, 58% of Startups had paying customers, up from 41% the previous year.

A Compelling Destination

Visitor Statistics

a)      Bed Nights

i)      Commercial guest nights have risen just 0.1% over the February 2019 year.

ii)     A similar pattern has been experienced nationally, as visitor arrivals growth slows and private accommodation platforms, such as Airbnb, continue to expand. Guest nights in Dunedin in February 2018 had also spiked due to one-offs such as the Masters Games and Robbie Williams concert.

iii)    However, occupancy in Dunedin remains high. Dunedin’s commercial accommodation occupancy rate across all types of accommodation was 57% over the past 12 months, compared to 46% nationally. Dunedin’s motel occupancy rate was 71% compared to 62% nationally.

b)      International Trade

i)      Trade travel work involves various activities to promote and support bookings via trade travel channels to overseas travellers. Supporting trade travel is also a key priority in Tourism New Zealand’s strategic plans.

ii)     During the year to March 2019, 1,024 travel agents participated in training by Enterprise Dunedin staff on Dunedin’s tourism offering; this number is similar to the previous year’s activity. Enterprise Dunedin also hosted 52 agents on Famils in the local area.

iii)    All efforts in trade support, training and famils undertaken, were focused on agents from, or marketing in, Dunedin’s most productive visitor markets, of Australia, China, UK/Europe, USA and South-East Asia.

c)      Business Events (Conferences)

i)      Although business events in Dunedin for the 12-month period to December 2018 decreased slightly, from 1,571 (in 2017) to 1,468, they were generally larger events that extended over more days. Therefore, delegate days in Dunedin still rose, as evident from the table below. A larger number of delegate days helps support guest nights in Dunedin.

Table - Delegate days and average event duration

December Year

Delegate Days

Average Event Duration (Days)







ii)     Enterprise Dunedin’s prospecting for business events has expanded over the past year. During the 12 months to March 2019, Enterprise Dunedin put in bids, followed up leads and assisted with 54 prospective business events, up from 30 the previous year.

iii)    There is typically a long lead time from initial engagement on a prospective business event until a final decision is made. Of the 54 prospective conference events engaged with over the past 12 months (covering the period 2020-2026), four were unsuccessful, 40 are still in progress, and 10 conferences were successful.

d)      PR and Promotions

i)      There were 11 media famils hosted during the period from January to March 2019. Media representatives were from New Zealand, Australia, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Canada, and Argentina.

ii)     In March 2019, Enterprise Dunedin organised a 15-page New Zealand Herald supplement dedicated to Dunedin, which featured several articles focusing on the life, work and visit themes. The main intention of the supplement was to showcase the future job opportunities and lifestyle of the city, but also raise awareness of Dunedin as a compelling domestic destination to visit.  The supplement was distributed to 75,000 New Zealand Herald subscribers in the urban Auckland area.

e)      i-SITE Visitor Centre

i)      The 2018/2019 cruise season has been a record season. An analysis of scheduled services shows 352,148 total passengers (including crew), up from 254,750 in the 2017/18 season (October to April) - an increase of over 38%. Total passenger numbers have almost doubled since the 2014/15 season when they totalled 189,349.

ii)     Dunedin’s cruise industry has not only grown in volume terms but is also attracting higher value visitors. An analysis of Statistics New Zealand cruise expenditure statistics shows that the average earnings per cruise visitor to Dunedin has risen from $134 (ex GST) in 2014/15 to $193 in 2017/18.

Table - Total cruise spending in Dunedin and average daily spend

Average Daily Spend/Visitor (ex GST)





iii)    The table below shows the split between cruise sales from the Port satellite and the city office, as reported via IBIS (the i-SITE booking engine). These sales are for tour, transport and activity bookings.

f)      Study Dunedin

i)      International students contributed $197 m to Dunedin’s economy during the 2017/18 year.

ii)     The following table breaks down this value added into different parts of the international education sector in Dunedin.

Table - International sector breakdown, 2017/18

Private Training Establishment






Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics



English Language School






iii)    An indicative understanding of more recent trends in international student numbers can be gleaned from visa data for Otago. The data shows that the number of valid student visas in Otago in February 2019 was 3,967 – down slightly on the 4,055 valid visas a year ago, but well up on the 3,592 valid visas in February 2017.

iv)    To put the Otago result in context, international students in Dunedin represented 76% of the total number of international students in Otago during 2017/18.


24    Infometrics Quarterly Economic Monitor for the December 2018 quarter was released on 28 February 2019; the full report is available at:

25    An Enterprise Dunedin media release responding to the report can be found at:

26    Highlights include:

·           The economy expanded by 2.7% over the December 2018 year, consistent with the national economy. This growth follows a revised 2.4% per annum expansion in 2017.

·           Traffic flows in Dunedin are rising at a similar level, up 2.3% in 2018.

·           Dunedin’s unemployment rate averaged 6.5% in 2018, compared to 6.9% in 2017.

·           Strong job prospects are encouraging people to relocate to Dunedin to live. Given the ongoing delays in the release of Census data and the removal of airport departure cards, Infometrics has recently begun using enrolments at primary health providers as a timely proxy for population growth. The data shows that health enrolments in Dunedin City grew 1.9% across 2018.

·           Growth in consumer spending climbed 5.0% in 2018, following 4.2% growth the previous year, and continue to remain above the national average.

·           Data from Marketview shows that purchases on electronic cards climbed 5.0% in 2018, following 4.2% growth the previous year.

·           More recent data made available since the Infometrics report shows that visitor spending in Dunedin for the year to February 2019 year increased 4.9% to $774 m, with international visitor spending rising 7.5% and domestic visitor spending rising 4.2%. A key factor pushing up international visitor spending in Dunedin has been the cruise industry.



27    As this is a report for noting, there are no options.


28    Feedback on the activity report will be incorporated in future updates.

Startup Ecosystem

Department: Enterprise Dunedin





1      This report seeks Economic Development Committee (EDC) approval for a Grow Dunedin Partnership (GDP) funding decision in line with GDP’s approvals and delegation.

2      On 28 March 2019, GDP resolved to allocate $150,000, from a proposed 2019/20 operating budget of $360,000 included in the 10 -Year Plan to the Startup Dunedin Trust (SUDT) to support the development of the startup ecosystem.

3      This investment builds on 2018//2019 activities and will further develop Dunedin startup businesses.

That the Committee:

a)     Approves $150,000 funding to the Startup Dunedin Trust for the 2019/20 financial year from proposed 2019/20 Grow Dunedin Partnership operating budgets.

b)     Notes this investment will attract $25,000 of funding from Callaghan Innovation for continuation of the Challenger Series.



4      A startup ecosystem is formed in a physical location by people, businesses (in their various stages of growth) and organisations who wish to support and scale new startup companies.

5      The ecosystem is typically led by entrepreneurs and often includes economic development agencies, universities, polytechnics, co-working spaces, professional services and existing and established businesses.

6      Development of the startup ecosystem has been identified as a key priority by GDP and Enterprise Dunedin given the role it plays in supporting the goals of the 2013-23 Economic Development Strategy (EDS):

a)     10,000 extra jobs over ten years (requiring employment growth of approximately 2% per annum);

b)     an average of $10,000 extra income for each person (requiring gross domestic product per capita to rise by about 2.5% per annum).

7      The development of the startup ecosystem contributes to all themes of the EDS:

a)     Business Vitality;

b)     Alliances for Innovation;

c)     A Hub for Skills and Talent;

d)     Linkages Beyond Our Borders;

e)     Compelling Destination.

8      On 11 September 2018 the EDC

Moved (Cr Andrew Whiley/Cr Christine Garey):

a)     approved $150,000 for measures to support the startup ecosystem from existing 2018/19 Grow Dunedin Partnership operating budgets;

b)     noted this investment will attract $50,000 from Callaghan Innovation for the delivery of business incubator services during 2018/19.

Motion carried (ED/2018/033)


2019/2020 Investment in the Startup Dunedin Trust (SUDT)

The 2018/19 Dunedin Ecosystem Support Fund (DES)

10    GDP agreed to set aside $50,000 (which formed the DES fund) for additional measures to support the wider startup ecosystem. An independent panel subsequently identified the following two projects for support:

a)     Konaki Māngai 

An internship programme developed by Innov8HQ aimed at supporting students and youth into startups;

b)     Rising Tide

A community-driven grant scheme designed to help launch early stage businesses and create better founders.

11    Both projects are still currently in delivery and the outcomes will be reported to the EDC at the end of the 2018/19 financial year.

12    On 28 March 2019, GDP resolved to allocate $150,000, from a proposed 2019/20 operating budget of $360,000 to the SUDT to support the development of the startup ecosystem.

13    This investment will support the delivery of the following workstreams and activities during 2019/20:

a)     startup support, incubation services and a second Challenger Series;

b)     continued delivery of the Audacious programme;

c)     ongoing delivery of Co.Starters;

d)     community events in conjunction with Dunedin co-working spaces;

e)     promotion and marketing of hero stories;

f)     further partnering with government agencies and local and regional investors.


Option One–Approve $150,000 investment in the Startup Dunedin Trust (preferred option).


14    EDC approves $150,000 from proposed 2019/2020 operating budgets to support the startup ecosystem.





·           Option one is supported by GDP and has been developed in conjunction with the SUDT, the wider ecosystem, local businesses and partners;

·           SUDT activities, delivery and outcomes are resourced during the 2019/2020 financial year;

·           Provides a platform to build on additional work streams such as the Centre for Digital Excellence (CODE) and support the development of talent and startups to grow Dunedin’s technology and creative sectors.


·           $150,000 less for other 2019/2020 GDP activities.

Option Two–Approve a smaller investment or no investment in the Startup Dunedin Trust

15    EDC approves a smaller or no investment (i.e. less than $150,000) for 2019/2020 from proposed GDP budgets to support the SUDT and the continued development of the startup ecosystem.


·           $150,000 for other 2019/2020 GDP activities.


·           Fewer services and support for the startup ecosystem during a period of increased momentum and growth;

·           Uncertainly for SUDT, staff and existing programmes;

·           Inability to attract additional match funding from agencies such as CreativeHQ for incubation services such as a second Challenger series.


16    If funding is approved, Enterprise Dunedin will update the existing service level agreement with the SUDT for 2019/2020. Outcomes will be reported back to EDC through quarterly reports.
