Showcasing Hawke’s Bay to global change makers

Hawke’s Bay has a new tool to attract local and global entrepreneurs and investors to our region – a relationship with the Edmund Hillary Fellowship programme that will reach hundreds of change makers and professionals looking to relocate to and within New Zealand.

The Edmund Hillary Fellowship is a partnership between the Hillary Institute and Kiwi Connect that has created a world-first, impact-focused immigration programme, with its three-year Global Impact Visa offering a path to permanent residence for high-impact entrepreneurs and investors.

Currently more than 200 tech-savvy Fellows are residing in New Zealand, and another 200 are looking to come to here in 2023 to start new businesses, invest into existing business and work remotely with our local businesses.

Great Things Grow Here has taken the opportunity to speak directly to these professionals about the wide-ranging potential of relocating to Hawke’s Bay.

In a 45-minute video, the many positive attributes of Hawke’s Bay, both for business and lifestyle, have been highlighted - focusing on three key areas of innovation: Technology, Food & Beverage and the Environment.

It profiles successful entrepreneurs, presents case studies and showcases projects being undertaken by sectors demonstrating strong opportunities for investment.

This video will be hosted on the Edmund Hillary Fellowship website for six months, and will also be shared through the Kea community network reaching 900+ offshore professional Kiwis looking to return to New Zealand.

In addition, it will sit on the Great Things Grow Here website and we are making it available to you to use as well for appropriate promotion activities.

Formatted in “chapters”, pertinent segments can be extracted for tailored marketing and promotion of the region.
