The Edmund Hillary Fellowship is a 3-year Fellowship programme for visionary entrepreneurs, investors and startup teams who are seeking to create and support global impact ventures. Our vision is to create a thriving, interconnected ecosystem of talented individuals working across New Zealand to significantly shift the dial in solving some of the most pressing global challenges of our time. While the programme operates in tandem with New Zealand’s new Global Impact Visa to attract international candidates, there are also places for up to 20 Kiwi Fellows per year to join the programme.

We’re holding Q&A sessions in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch during Techweek to help clarify what the Fellowship is all about, what kind of support we can offer to Kiwi entrepreneurs and investors, and how you can get involved. Applications are open on a rolling basis, with a new cohort selected every six months. If you’re an entrepreneur or investor who is dedicated towards creating global impact through your work, please join us for some networking with your peers, a short presentation, and plenty of time to ask questions!
