Forbes magazine named New Zealand’s software-as-a-service champion Xero as the world’s most innovative growth company.

Because it looms so large in the local technology scene, it’s easy to lose sight of where Xero fits into the global picture. Now there’s no longer any doubt the company is world-class.

We’re used to our sporting heroes winning on the world stage. We’ve done it with movies and music, now it’s our technology sector’s turn in the spotlight.

All international kudos is good, but this is the one that matters, it gives us an opportunity to secure our financial future.

Now let’s see if we can create another dozen Xeroes.
