Innovation

Te Puna Whakatipu

Te Puna Whakatipu is Massey University’s strategic initiatives hub. Our mandate is to create better futures for New Zealand and the world, drawing upon the university’s capability, facilities and knowledge platforms in agriculture, food, health, business and design.

Te Puna Whakatipu means ‘the spring of development’ or the place from which new things can grow. The team’s aim is to create value for individuals, communities and organisations, by:

  • Drawing upon the university’s capability, facilities and knowledge platforms to solve problems for industry
  • Connecting with government, business, industry and communities
  • Hosting pan-university initiatives
  • Providing university-level leadership of Massey's agrifood business strategy, FoodHQ and our sustainability strategy
  • Helping staff develop and test new ideas

We will help you find the best way to deliver a better future for New Zealand, based on your expertise. The outcome might be a new strategic initiative, a new research programme or the development of a new commercial opportunity.

We work with you to:

  • Find out how to make your idea a reality
  • Test ‘proof of concept’
  • Connect with the Massey service units who can help
  • Engage effectively with industry

If you would like to become involved in Massey initiatives, please get in touch with us.

    My passion is New Zealand, and as Director of Agrifood Business at Massey University my role is to leverage the university’s capability, facilities & knowledge platforms in agriculture, food, health, business, design & social sciences in order to create a better future for New Zealand and the world. I am currently Acting Director of FoodHQ during an exciting period of transition as it farewells founding Director Mark Ward and enters its next stage of development.  In both these roles my focus is accelerating strategy, building capability and driving sustainable growth for firms and communities.
