FUELLING SUCCESS FOR UNDERREPRESENTED FOUNDERS
Aotearoa New Zealand boasts approximately 2,500 high-growth startups, yet only 21% of them have a woman on their founding team. It’s a stark gender gap that needs to close.
When a woman or gender non-binary person is part of a startup’s founding leadership team, the chances and magnitude of success increase. In short, Aotearoa and the world need YOU.

Hale Animal Health
As a first-time accelerator participant, I wasn't sure what to expect but the program was great as it tailored the support to each startup's unique needs. The speakers, coaches and mentors involved were all very high-caliber, it was great to have access to that level of support and to expand my network. The MoA team also had a real genuine care for our businesses and our success, and they have continued to offer support beyond the accelerator programme as well, which has been fantastic.
