NZ Entrepreneurship Manifesto


To create a diverse and more resilient foundation for intergenerational economic prosperity, Aotearoa New Zealand needs more people creating new companies that use innovative processes, technology, and business models. These people are entrepreneurs.

The global pandemic, ongoing environmental challenges, and rapid advances in technology have led to an enormous disruption of traditionally robust industries, whilst opening the door to new, cleaner, and more ethical business models. Entrepreneurs boldly seize these opportunities and generate economic and social outcomes that benefit society. Today’s new ventures are tomorrow’s successful companies, supporting thriving communities.

The purpose of this manifesto is to invite government agencies to broaden their engagement with the wider entrepreneurship community to work together from the ground-up on policies that will result in more, and higher-quality, entrepreneurs and new ventures.
