Our Journey

We're here

Approximately 1/3 of the Māori economy sits within the wider BOP, yet Māori are significantly underrepresented in key growth sectors

Roughly 44% of all young people in the region are Māori

Where we're going

Greater access for Māori to high-value growth opportunities through collaboration with industry, education, government and community sectors.

40k new jobs predicted in the wider BOP by 2050, with Māori, Pasifika and Asian communities making up 30% of the working age population by 2030.

How we're getting there

A strong emphasis on strategic collaboration and innovative events and initiatives, underpinned by a whānau and community-centric approach

Success through purposeful investment in the Māori innovation ecosystem across the region
