New Zealand uniquely bridges indigenous wisdom, leading-edge innovation, progressive policies, and abundance of natural life. Leading the world with its agile and friendly business environment, it has earned its reputation as an Incubation Nation where world-changing visions come to life.
Strong political rights and civil liberties. Open and progressive. Friendly tight-knit business communities that value collaboration. A nation of immigrants.
Spirit of resourcefulness. Collaboration is valued over competition. Innovative, open government. Research and development grants. Anything is possible.
Strong trade relations with the East and the West. A well-educated workforce. Ideal testing grounds for new products. Freedom and flexibility to iterate and pivot.
– Sacha MacDonald, EHF Fellow, Rezource

As with any healthy natural ecosystem, New Zealand’s innovation ecosystem thrives on diversity and collaboration to create integrated solutions to complex problems.
