While originally founded by the Ara Institute of Canterbury and Ministry of Awesome, Te Ōhaka is a city resource dedicated to the growth and success of all parties involved in Christchurch and Canterbury’s startup and innovation ecosystem.

 

Te Ōhaka is located in Ara’s high profile Kahukura building on Moorhouse Avenue and is currently taking applications from startups and innovators with bold ambition.

Te Ōhaka is the home of high-growth startups in Christchurch.

Te Ōhaka is the innovation space for startups who think bold. It’s where the high growth start-up community lives and where members collaborate, emulate and press accelerate.
