Global Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is an essential part of the New Zealand’s business ecosystem’s transition to green growth. During Global Entrepreneurship Week in 2016 in the spirit of celebrating all that Aotearoa New Zealand had to offer, Pure Advantage teamed up with Kiwi Connect and the Edmund Hillary Fellowship to promote some of the incredible work that is being done in the green growth and clean-tech space and to showcase the opportunities that exist here. With small test populations, a spirit of resourcefulness, business-friendly regulations and a beautiful natural environment to protect, New Zealand is a perfect place to develop and incubate clean-tech and green growth ventures. We were also recently named the #1 place in the world for the ease of starting a business, so no excuses for not getting into it!
