The Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, in 2014 has well and truly engaged in a world-wide movement. Co-working and collaboration have been seen as buzz words, part of an American inspired ‘craze’, to some people until very recently. Today they are a very real and vital part of the working lives of a growing number of professionals in the Bay.
Shared work-spaces such as Ignition and Studio 64 in Tauranga, The Junction in Mount Manganui and Flair space in Rotorua bring sole-agents, freelancers and remote-workers together to share attractive, flexible city working environments, the company of other professionals – motivating each other and meeting new people in the process.
Collaboration spaces such as Newnham Park Tech Precinct, in Te Puna and Basestation Communication and Technology Space in Durham Street, Tauranga bring more established businesses and similar individuals together who share complimentary skills to intentionally share technology, resources, knowledge and projects to support new business creation.
If you are looking for a way to grow your income, your capabilities and your opportunities for success and haven’t already checked out co-working and collaboration in the Bay of Plenty then now is a good time to do so. But make sure you do it sooner rather than later. When the rest of the world realises that you can have all the benefits of co-working, collaboration and live in our beautiful Bay to boot, everyone will want to live, learn, work and succeed here.
