Edmund Hillary Fellowship
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.
Up to 50 international and 10 New Zealand-based Fellows are selected every six months to join the three-year programme, and become part of a diverse community of exceptional entrepreneurs and investors supported by a global network of mentors, ambassadors, partners and supporters.
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. Kiwi Fellows receive advice, mentorship and a community to help them take their work global. All Fellows receive access to partner networks and individualised support to succeed in their ventures.
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.
