BizDojo Welly Is Moving Into The Heart Of Tech

For three glorious years the BizDojo Wellington community has occupied 1,470 sundrenched square meters of a former printing factory, and it’s time to say goodbye.

2018 will see us occupying the current home of New Zealand tech giants, Xero, at 3 Market Lane by the Wellington waterfront.

This move will create a naturally occurring tech-hub, with our supercharged community and ColliderWgtn right right in the middle of our inspiring neighbours; Xero, Trademe, NZ Stock Exchange, Te Papa’s incubator, Mahuki and the NZ Film Commission.

While we’ve loved operating out of our Tory street digs the decision to move was a no brainer with so many of our residents working together to build the future - we’ve quickly reached capacity.

Jonah & Nick show their excitement for the new building.

Xero will still be nearby as they consolidate their staff from various sites around Wellington under one roof on Taranaki Street. Founder of Xero Rod Drury says he’s very pleased his old digs will have such cool new owners.

“We're so happy our friends at BizDojo have taken over our old home. We've worked a lot with their team mentoring companies and the space has been the launch pad of much global innovation that we're sure will continue”.

BizDojo’s founders Nick and Jonah see this next step for BizDojo Wellington as having a massive benefit for the city’s innovative companies looking to collaborate and expand offshore.

We’re founders ourselves and we know that the path to growing game-changing ideas and businesses can be lonely, stressful and difficult. We are providing a collaborative and supportive environment for founders and entrepreneurs, which means better outcomes and more resilience for our business community.

It is great that this is happening naturally in a city like Wellington, and speaks volumes that the local ecosystem is able to organically build a vibrant community with minimal intervention.
— Jonah Merchant

3 Market lane has the capacity for a coworking community of 450 residents and we can’t wait to see it full of founders, startups, entrepreneurs, creatives and small businesses doing awesome stuff.

Looking forward to seeing all your faces at our space-warming in November!
