ATEED is Auckland’s economic growth agency. It’s ATEED's job to ignite changes that transform the local economy.

What ATEED does

ATEED helps create a future of prosperity and opportunity for Auckland, by:

  • leading and supporting initiatives and networks that attract talent and investment
  • boosting business and job creation
  • fostering innovation and an entrepreneurial culture
  • growing our visitor economy by attracting international events and visitors from around the world
  • shaping Auckland's identity to stand out globally.

ATEED is part of the Auckland Council family. We partner within the family and with others – corporates, government agencies, industry clusters and universities – to build a business environment that thrives on new thinking and collaboration.

ATEED helps Auckland businesses grow, innovate and become export ready, and we play a part in nurturing a skilled local workforce through a number of initiatives.

With city-to-city relationships increasingly driving global investment, ATEED also promotes Auckland to high-value visitors and create chances for trade growth through these relationships, including the Tripartite Economic Alliance with Guangzhou and Los Angeles.
