Project leader

What are the bases for Māori enterprise collaboration? How do Māori activate Indigenous entrepreneurial capabilities for collaboration and what forms do Māori enterprise collaborations take?

By exploring Māori enterprise collaboration as a fundamental but challenging strategy for Māori economic development, this project identifies principles and models which can inform Māori and non-Māori about enterprise collaboration. It does this by using mātauranga Māori, kaupapa Māori, tikanga Māori and te reo Māori, as well as considerations of non-Māori principles, practices and technologies for enterprise collaboration.
