Our Origins and Values

The original investors in NILO were a company called Indigitech Ltd., named in acknowledgement of Indigenous technology.

A collective of more than fifty Māori whānau from many different Hapū/Iwi, called Te Hono (the collective), made their investment in the NILO Technology as contributors.

Māori are the Indigenous people of Aotearoa (New Zealand) known as Tangata Whenua (people of the land). Whānau are family groups and Hapū are groups of related family, belonging to a larger Tribe (Iwi).

These combined first contributors, recognised NILO as a potentially game changing solution to the global environmental crisis.

Over the last four years like-minded investors from New Zealand, Japan, Germany, Australia and the UK have funded the company and brought in considerable expertise and capability.
