Te Pūnaha Hiringa: Māori Innovation Fund

Te Pūnaha Hiringa: Māori Innovation Fund is a $3 million per year fund, which assists Māori collectives to gain the understanding and knowledge needed to realise the economic potential of their assets.

The fund invests in initiatives that contribute to achieving the goals and priorities in He Kai Kei Aku Ringa (the Crown-Māori Economic Growth Partnership) and the Business Growth Agenda.

It comprises two schemes that seek to increase the skills, knowledge and networks of Māori collectives, and help them to engage more effectively with the wider enterprise development and innovation systems.

The timeframes for funding decisions for Te Pūnaha Hiringa: Māori Innovation Fund have changed this year, but we can confirm that the fund will continue to offer support to Māori collectives and enterprises. We expect to have more information soon, and will publish this on the website when it is available.

The two schemes are:

Commercial Advisors Scheme
