Our Story

Tā Mātou Kōrero

I tūtaki a Katie ki a Lee i te tau 2021 i te Whāriki (Māori Business Network), there they found their shared passion ki te manaaki i a ngai Māori in the DigiTech environment.

Te Hapori Matihiko is a kaupapa that we believe will contribute to an increase in Māori representation and participation in the digitech sector, both in Aotearoa and abroad. We will support Māori empowerment in digital by creating a connection space online, by sharing mātauranga, and by providing recognition opportunities. We will create a leadership programme and centres of excellence. Ultimately, we hope this kaupapa will create a supportive, thriving and super connected hapori.
