29 and 30 October 2016
Basestation Tauranga
Why attend?
Get face time with other coworking owners, managers and residents to collectively create or share solutions to coworking challenges
What you will get
Yes, they are buzzwords we hear a lot lately but there is power in collective action and support from a peer-group of like-minds on who you will be able to call at anytime.
Plus, you also get a T-shirt (the first ever coworking hui Tee! A collectors item :-), fed and watered!
How it works
Venture Centre runs Basestation space in Tauranga, and we are excited to make our space available and work with you to facilitate this weekend of sharing.
