In 2020 Michelle attended an Aotearoa Māori Surfing Titles committee hui. This particular hui was being held in a shared workspace. Michelle had met with another colleague and they both thought “whoa, wouldn’t it be cool if we had a space like this for Māori?”.
October 2020, 11 weeks after the initial idea, Māori Vibes had opened their doors for business.
Māori Vibes is a passion for Michelle and has been her kākano.
Today Māori Vibes provides a vibrant and positive space for Māori in business, giving a truly inspiring experience.
The hāpori continues to flourish.
Michelle had foreseen the benefits and opportunities that working within a Māori environment could provide to those involved. A place that Māori businesses are able to network, creating opportunities within the Māori Vibe ecosystem.
