New Frontiers


An Intimate Gathering

New Frontiers is a mix of workshops, emergent conversation, keynote talks and fun activities, all within an intimate gathering aligned with our mission of supporting New Zealand as an “Incubation Nation”, from which to develop, grow and launch integrated solutions to global challenges.

Edmund Hillary Fellowship

Launching a World First

We will be introducing the first cohort of entrepreneurs and investors selected into the Edmund Hillary Fellowship (EHF), bringing together incredible people to lead change from New Zealand. Each EHF Fellow will share their work and vision, for New Zealand and the world. Make new connections, build new friendships, and explore opportunities for collaboration during New Frontiers, or join us for the Showcase Day only on 20 October.



Solving Global Problems

We will explore the complexities and interconnections of social and planetary challenges humanity faces today, and the opportunities for integrated and innovative solutions. Using successful examples of creativity and innovation from around the world, we can expand our imaginations of what is possible. The programme will include an EHF Showcase Day on 20th October, where the selected Fellows will share their vision for global impact, and the type of work they are doing to catalyse this from New Zealand.



Co-created by you, the Participants

With your input, we will explore the edges of creativity for existing and new industries, through mutual-learning and cross-pollination of diverse perspectives, covering topics such as agriculture, digital media, climate change, health, government, investment, and technology. Stay tuned - we look forward to sharing programme details with you soon!



Connect with your Inner Child

At New Frontiers, you will have many opportunities to relax, unwind, and enjoy time away from your day-to-day life to connect with self. Many participants have found this part of the programme rejuvenating, and shared their own talents with the group also.
