An impact focused community of action

EHF fellows are building transformative companies and initiatives across sectors. We support a diversity of tactics working at the edges of new technology, leading bold social movements and instigating deep change inside large institutions.


Opening a new worldview

We believe that transformative solutions and creating true paradigm shifts requires thinking fundamentally differently. Using ‘business as usual’ to solve these problems isn’t good enough. The deep indiegenious wisdom and worldview offered by New Zealand’s Maori culture offers a truly unique, powerful perspective to entrepreneurial problem solving. We are proud to be building EHF alongside Maori leadership from Te Ātiawa Taranaki Whanau.
