Co-Working Spaces Increase

May 23, 2018

 Hannah Delaney, of Paraparaumu-based co-working space Kāpiti Collective, says her shared office space has focused on creating a community.


She says the opportunities that working within a community creates are one hundredfold to working in isolation, adding that co-working has positive health, mental and social benefits for individuals, not to mention the profitability to businesses that become more productive, creative and knowledgeable from surrounding themselves with others.


Co-working is a growing trend in New Zealand, and the Government is also involved, earmarking  $100,000 last month from its Provincial Growth Fund towards a feasibility study into "innovation precincts" in Taranaki, likely to include co-working spaces.


Co-working office space totalled 13,900 square metres in 2016 and is expected to rise over the next few years.
