The Edmund Hillary Fellowship (EHF) is a Fellowship programme and community that provides exceptional entrepreneurs, investors and startup teams with a platform to incubate global impact ventures from Aotearoa New Zealand.
- Meet our inaugural Fellows in the Kawakawa Cohort, welcomed into EHF in October 2017.

EHF works in collaborative partnership with Immigration New Zealand, to issue three-year Global Impact Visas for up to 100 international Fellows each year who are accepted into the programme. They will join up to 20 Kiwis in the programme, who can help to orient them in New Zealand and create lasting connections.
