Ignition Co-Working Space
In 2012 Priority One established the Ignition co-working space in Rydal House in Tauranga’s city centre to foster innovation and entrepreneurship. The initiative supports early stage entrepreneurs and promotes commercialisation by providing office infrastructure to those that are self-employed, freelance or from out of town. The atmosphere encourages networking, collaboration and innovation. Hot-desks, meeting rooms, access to ultra-fast broadband and break-out spaces/lounge areas have been provided. The facility is supported by sponsors University of Waikato, Tauranga City Council, Zariba Holdings and Plus Group Horticulture. In addition to enabling further growth of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, Ignition provides a landing pad for new businesses to the city.
