EHF’s New Frontiers is a 3-day event that brings together creative entrepreneurial leaders from New Zealand and around the world, to share, explore and co-create integrated solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. Each participant bring their passions, skills and expertise to help shape our experience together.

The Edmund Hillary Fellowship (EHF) brings together humankind’s creative potential and entrepreneurial spirit in Aotearoa New Zealand, to build innovative ventures for global impact. Our mission is to incubate solutions to global problems from New Zealand and make a lasting positive impact on the world. A cohort of Fellows are selected every six months to join EHF and become part of a diverse community of changemakers.

International Fellows receive exclusive access to the Global Impact Visa, the world’s most entrepreneur-friendly visa, and the only one to be focused on impact, with a path to Permanent Residence. EHF has been developed in the spirit and memory of Sir Edmund Hillary. The Edmund Hillary Fellowship is wholly owned by the Hillary Institute of International Leadership. Learn more at www.ehf.org.
