About THE EVENT
New Frontiers is a gathering of passionate minds and visionary leaders who can create positive impact in their communities and around the world. The event is designed to facilitate deep connections and collective exploration of areas in which New Zealand can create significant global impact. This October, we will introduce the first EHF Fellows, local and international entrepreneurs and investors working to create global impact from New Zealand.
The October event is a 4-day residential experience hosted at a retreat centre in Waiuku, creating an atmosphere of trust, community, and openness. This setting allows for deep exposure to new ways of thinking, authentic relationships to be forged, and fuels creativity between a group of diverse people.
Participants come from varied backgrounds, and will include entrepreneurs and investors, technologists and inventors, artists, scientists and educators, farmers, senior government leaders, cultural leaders, philanthropists, and many more. We will host up to 150 participants, through a mix of invitations and an open application process. Each person who joins is a changemaker in their own way, and comes to receive and contribute.
New Frontiers is a co-created forum, where each person participates in shaping the experience.
It is a time for bold visioning and exploration of ideas for a brighter future. We invite each participant to listen, learn, absorb, integrate, exchange ideas, and actively share perspectives and passions.
There will be space for you to host sessions, workshops or conversations throughout the event, along with activities to allow meaningful connections, and mental and physical rejuvenation.
The co-created experience, the depth of exploration, diversity of perspectives, and the vulnerability and openness that New Frontiers fosters pushes all of us out of our comfort zones. That is part of what participants of past New Frontiers have found most rewarding from the experience.
