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 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.
✓ Joint access to entrepreneur-rich and well-networked community
✓ A mentorship programme led by sector and ecosystem leaders
✓ Customised education, capability building and opportunities to pitch
✓ 100+ events per year
