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, to envision new possibilities for collective wellbeing, and connect with passionate minds. New Frontiers this October will be particularly special as we introduce the first cohort of international and local entrepreneurs and investors selected into the Edmund Hillary Fellowship. This is a major first step in New Zealand’s journey to becoming a launchpad for global impact solutions, and we look forward to bringing changemakers together to solve some of humanity’s greatest challenges.
