About Us

Welcome to the place innovators, industry and ideas meet!

Welcome Te Tūāpapa Auaha. Hosted by KiwiNet, Te Tūāpapa Auaha is a space for people and organisations across New Zealand to connect, drive ideas, solve problems, and find inspiration and resources around innovation projects.

Auaha uses a 'Brightideas' platform open to anyone interested in developing great ideas with three service level options designed to suit the needs of community builders, publicy-funded and public sector organisations, tech incubators, innovation and industry organisations, regional and economic development agencies and individuals.

We express our gratitude to Holden Hohaia, at Manaaki Whenua, for helping KiwiNet find a name which reflects our goal to provide a place open for all to connect, create and innovate.  Tūāpapa, a foundation or platform, and Auaha, to shape, create or fashion, creative and innovative.
