Offered at different locations around Aotearoa, Pakihi provides much-needed support to individuals wanting to achieve and maximise their business opportunities. Powered by Te Wānanga o Aotearoa.
Kōkiri is a values-based 4-month startup accelerator that supports 10 early stage Māori-led companies on a journey for business growth. Developed for Māori, by Māori, Kōkiri is built upon a foundation of Kia angitu te tauira (founder success), and designed to strengthen founders which in turn strengthens their business.
Start-up Wānanga is an opportunity for participants to learn the process of converting an existing business idea into a new product or service. They will shape the idea through a series of 10 learning ‘sprints’ and practical exercises over the course of the weekend. On the final day, participants will pitch their business proposal to a panel of judges and a live audience. The environment is one of learning, collaboration and supporting each other through this journey.
