Te Hapori Matihiko is a community for Māori in Digital and Tech. It was founded in 2022 by Lee Timutimu (Arataki Systems) and Katie Brown (Social Good). Katie and Lee secured funding from MBIE as part of their Māori 
Innovation funding. 

Te Hapori Matihiko is a kaupapa (intiative) by Māori, for Māori, of Māori.

Te Hapori Matihiko is passionate about increasing Māori representation in the industry, growing capabilities and recognising Māori who do amazing things in Digitech.

We offer mātauranga sessions with leaders in our hapori, wānanga, cultural support, and opportunities to contribute digital skills and expertise back to your rohe.

The Matihiko Awards is our annual event, and will recognise Māori Digitech excellence. The celebration and visibility of our people is an important step in creating leadership pathways for Māori in Digitech.
