In the heart of Christchurch’s Innovation Precinct, our Ash Street Dojo is in very good company. From the idea generators at Vodafone and Kathmandu to the experimental, and inventive fast-growing businesses housed within EPIC Innovation, Vodafone Xone, GreenHouse and Ministry of Awesome; BizDojo Ash is where you go to connect with Canterbury’s brightest innovators and entrepreneurs.
Become a local (it won’t take long) with the vibrant and friendly humans at Smash Palace or check out the class and atmosphere of Sal’s, Dux Cocktail and the Wine & Brew Bar. If you, like us, enjoy an after work drink amongst good people, then we've got you sorted.
Within your Dojo, you will find a variety of different ways of working, designed to support everyone from those just getting started on their idea to freelancers, contractors, one-man bands, remote workers, small businesses, startups and entrepreneurs. We have also designed open and closed studio options for teams and individuals after increased privacy and a little more space to call their own.
Everywhere you look, Christchurch is building communities and our coworking community reflects the creative, expressive, artistic, diverse, entrepreneurial, bright, engaging and exciting humans that live around us. You will join a hardworking crew of folks who focus their energy on everything from Geographic Information Systems to promoting bugs as a sustainable food option!
BizDojo Ash Street is just 500m from the Bus Interchange and there's also a handy bus stop on Madras street (one street away). Madras Street is also home to comfortable cycle lanes so we're easy to access by bike. If you're coming in by car, there's a carpark building at 160 Lichfield street (immediately next door), which also has secure bike parking ($5 per week).
We do require 30 days notice if you wish to cancel your membership, if you are a permanent pod (2 or more desks) you will need to give us 3 months notice.
Our Permanent membership allows you to have your own desk where you can leave your things at all times. This makes our 'Perm' membership perfect for those bringing a bit more than their laptop. However, we do have a storage cupboard where you can leave your screen if you are happy to pack it up and down each day.
Absolutely! If you can please give us the heads up of your dates of travel and we can let the other Dojos know when to expect you!
Meeting rooms are all included in your membership, we have a computer onsite where you can book these from. We have a 2 hour max time slot and our meeting rooms are all different sizes depending on how many you have in the meeting.
You absolutely can! We are open Monday to Friday 8:30-5. Just pop in to see us and of the community team will be sitting at the front desk and happy to take you on a tour and get you settled in for the day.
