Around 20% of New Zealanders live outside of New Zealand. This is our “Diaspora” — and it’s one of the world’s largest, per capita.

And not only is it large, it's insanely talented.

Early in their lives and careers, many of New Zealand’s most ambitious sons and daughters realise — if they want to make a dent in the universe, they need to get out into the world.

Some come home, but many don’t. Whether moving overseas to study, explore the world, start companies, pursue opportunities… most drop off the domestic radar entirely, painted as the “brain drain”, lamented as a missed opportunity.

Today, the estimated ~1M Kiwi expats around the world include some of our finest talents: founders of game-changing companies, global leaders in business, science, technology… entrenched in all walks of life, in all corners of the world. 

We believe “New Zealand” is much more than its geographic borders… it’s an identity, a network, and one you should be proud to be a part of. 

So we’re setting out to find, and profile the founders, innovators and leaders of the great Kiwi expat community.
