Who We Are
Ko Māui Hangarau began its life as part of the Tauranga Groundswell Festival of Innovation 2018. We wanted to provide a platform to help Rangatahi Māori accelerate their pathway to success in the technology & innovation space.
Due to the success of the first KMH event in August 2018, and based on overwhelming demand, we are scaling the events programme across the country in 2020, and into 2021.
KMH operates as a not-for-profit social enterprise.
To awaken, inspire and ignite rangatahi Māori.
To open the minds of our rangatahi to the world of Māori in Technology & Innovation.
To promote te Reo me ōna Tikanga at every opportunity.
To follow in the footsteps of the greatest Māori innovator of them all – Māui!
“If I can see success, I can be success!” – I can better connect with, people that look like me, sound like me, and have a similar story to me.
“Innovation is ingrained in our DNA!” – because my ancestors were innovators, through whakapapa I am also an Innovator.
