IN THE TRACTOR SHED - BEHIND THE SCENES

So how did this brilliant business and event hub come together you ask? Well, it started as a response to the fact that Northland is growing and more enterprising individuals are choosing to base their businesses here. Without doubt, the region offers an awesome work / life balance and also has the advantages of an economy on the rise.

So the bright sparks in the Business Innovation and Growth team at Northland Inc got talking, about how a collaborative works space could the start of something great. They took this conversation to their mates at the Northland Chamber of Commerce, who took no convincing!

From there the idea grew, before long the Northland Regional Council were behind it and then support came from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

Northland Inc and the Northland Chamber of Commerce are both tasked with supporting the economic growth of Northland, so they’ve taken the whole thing one step further – they’ve moved in! Both teams are huge supporters of innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit, so by being under one roof they can connect and provide services to the Orchardists whenever they need it.

 So, The Orchard has got some pretty incredible support, it’s a new kind of co-working space with priority given to you, the Orchardists' who choose this place to call home!
