Te Wai Coulston

Te Wai Ariki (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Kahungunu, Te Aitanga-a-Hauiti) began his Asia journey as assistant national leader for New Zealand's delegation to the Ship for World Youth Leaders in Japan and continued with a Māori business tour in Shanghai.

These experiences informed his deep interest in Asia-New Zealand trade relations, leading to working at New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.

There he served as an international growth fund advisor and investment analyst, supporting startups and Māori companies throughout the capital raising process.

Now a senior analyst at Polis Consulting Group, Te Wai focuses on strategy development for organisations aiming to expand their impact.
