We’re starting a conversation. An online, data-driven conversation that seeks to demonstrate the diversity of innovation in Aotearoa New Zealand.

From August 1 – 5 we’re working with Figure.NZ to bring together the country’s thinkers and doers for a series of online data-driven discussions that explore the state and role of innovation across the country.

Aotearoa New Zealand has a history of inventiveness – from Polynesian navigation techniques to the introduction of refrigerated shipping, and social and political innovations such as universal suffrage. But what does innovation mean today for our society, culture, and economy?

We want to show Aotearoa New Zealand that innovation is for and by everyone.
