Working in the Precinct

Why Choose the Precinct

The focal point of innovation and entrepreneurship in New Zealand’s newest city

The Innovation Precinct is the focal point for innovation and entrepreneurship Christchurch.  It is the meeting place for innovators, entrepreneurs and business people from across the city and elsewhere to connect, to share and test ideas, to learn and foster innovation for the city.

Christchurch offers entrepreneurs and investors the very best of everything that New Zealand has to offer.  Being New Zealand’s second largest city, it has the scale to provide access to meaningful work, and has an international airport just 20 minutes from the CBD.  With three tertiaries and world-class schools there are quality learning opportunities.  Christchurch offers a vibrant social, arts and cultural scene combined with lots of opportunity for sport and experiencing the great outdoors – mountains to sea.  Christchurch is a city of opportunity – a place to grow, connect and find balance.

Christchurch is also a city of change – new buildings, art installations and bars are opening every  week.  Every day Christchurch realizes more of its vision as a city where people can experience the very best of living in New Zealand – in their work and the connections with people, their communities and the natural environment.  Christchurch is a city that knows about change, innovation and adaption – it’s a place to try new things, to create and solve problems with other like-minded people.

A connected community

It’s rare to get connections like this anywhere else.  The Precinct’s diverse mix of people and businesses located closely together, means there is always someone to learn from or share your ideas with.  There is a real openness to connect and share resources, contacts and knowhow to achieve more.  Whatever stage you’re at, the Christchurch Innovation Precinct community has a breadth of knowledge, experience and energy that’s hard to match.

There’s access to world class talent and resources like business incubators such as Vodafone’s Xone tech lab, an angel investor network, and a great network of highly skilled developers, programmers, business analysts, marketers, digital product designers and entrepreneurs.

Our community is a buzzing hub of meetups, lunches and events.  Whether it’s the Ministry of Awesome’s weekly “coffee & jam sessions” for pitching ideas to the monthly Canterbury Tech Cluster networking event – the biggest local tech cluster in New Zealand, tech meet up groups, angel investment groups, yoga classes and business learning events – there’s something happening every week, so come and join us.

A space to suit you

The Precinct has space to suit everyone – from great cafes and bars to hang out in with your laptop, to co-working spaces and meeting rooms you can book by the hour and larger and more long-term offices spaces to lease and property development opportunities.

A global network at your fingertips

With 420 million customers in more than 60 countries Vodafone, as one of our anchor tenants, has a good idea about going global. The Vodafone Xone’s technology accelerator, one of seven in the world, provides a lucrative start-up accelerator programme for ten Kiwi companies biannually.
