Welcome friends around the world
A New Frontier Is Here
The time has come once again to gather in Aotearoa New Zealand to co-create in service together, and to laugh, play, and share our passions. New Frontiers 2017 will launch the Edmund Hillary Fellowship, and build the momentum for New Zealand to be a launchpad for visionary entrepreneurs, investors and teams to incubate global solutions to complex problems. This programme will work in tandem with the New Zealand Government's recently announced Global Impact Visas - the most entrepreneur-friendly visa in the world, and the first to be oriented around impact.
