Our origin story

The Orchard started as a response to the fact that Northland is growing and more enterprising individuals are choosing to base their businesses here. Our region offers an unbeatable work / life balance, and has the support of the nation as an economy on the rise. What it needed was something to tie it all together - something that meant better access to local and national support for entrepreneurship and innovation, and that connected enterprising Northlanders with each-other to learn, get inspired, and collaborate.


So the bright sparks at Northland Inc (our regional economic development agency) got talking. What if there was a place where these like-minded folks base themselves and their work, all while getting a direct 'in' to services at the forefront of the local and national drive to support entrepreneurship? They took this conversation to their mates at the Northland Chamber of Commerce - who needed no convincing! - and with the later backing of the Northland Regional Council and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, The Orchard was born.
