Māori are the Indigenous people of Aotearoa-New Zealand. Māori entrepreneurial teams harmonise the collective intent and complementary attributes of individual members, and balance heritage with innovation. They recognize spiritual and human ancestors, and descendants not yet born, as part of the entrepreneurial team and shareholders in their intent and outcomes. This inclusive humanistic-spiritual approach has ramifications for the Māori entrepreneurial team’s observation of history and its teachings, and how it conceives of and works towards the future. This chapter focuses on two clusters of values – temporality and intent – to demonstrate that the relationship between entrepreneurship and cultural values determines the composition of, and guides toward success, the Māori entrepreneurial team. More generally, the chapter offers a lens into Indigenous entrepreneurship, team formation, aspirations and turnover.
