MEET THE TEAM
Below are our Northland Inc team members who are based at Mahinga Innovation Centre. You will also find many of us there for meetings and events on a more ad hoc basis.
Mahinga Innovation Centre Co-ordinator
I was born and raised in Tāmaki Makaurau. In my adult years I lived and worked in numerous places in the South Pacific and Aotearoa, but knew it was only a matter of time before Te Tai Tokerau called my husband home. We moved to Whangārei in 2008. Find out more
Front of House - Mahinga Innovation Centre
I grew up on Turrbal and Jagera land in Meanjin (Brisbane) and moved to Kerikeri in 2020 to be closer to whānau. Find out more
Project Manager – Business Resilience
I hail from the small but mighty Ōkaihau, and now live close by in Kerikeri. Find out more
Born in Queenstown, raised in the Bay of Plenty, a decent stretch overseas, and after fifteen years in Wellington, the beautiful North has captured my heart. We found a piece of paradise on a maunga overlooking Whangarei Heads that we've called home since 2014 and now it's hard to imagine ourselves anywhere else. Find out more
WHĀRIKI TE KŌTIRI PAKIHI
Mahinga Innovation Centre In Action
Whāriki Te Tai Tokerau, along with representatives from Amotai, Te Hiringa, BDO, Poutama, NorthChamber, Ministry of Social Development and Te Puni Kōkiri, recently held their Kaikohe business support drop in event at the Mahinga Innovation Centre.
Māori pakihi engaged in kōrero kanohi ki te kanohi with representatives from all of these organisations to gain tailored assistance for funding, advice, support, and to discover opportunities for them to future-proof their businesses.
The centre provided a great location with plenty of parking, awesome kai and modern meeting rooms and spaces for kōrero.
