Leading Change
at the Edge of
the World

Launching early 2017

Join a select group of high-impact entrepreneurs, investors, and startup leaders who are working together in New Zealand to address some of humanity’s greatest challenges.


The Edmund Hillary Fellowship offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for visionary entrepreneurs, investors and startup teams to live and work in New Zealand and to create scalable, positive global impact. Up to 100 international and 20 New Zealand-based Fellows will be selected each year to join a diverse community of exceptional entrepreneurs and investors. International candidates are invited to apply for a Global Impact Visa, a three-year open work visa for New Zealand, while all Fellows receive access to partner networks and individualised support to succeed in their ventures.
