We know that Startups are hard when you’re sitting at the kitchen table or alone in the garden shed. The John Lysaght building is the original startup hub of GridAKL in Wynyard Qtr. Home to a busy event venue and 200+ members across our coworking areas, Lysaght is a whole lot more than just a work space. It is a community of like-minded people willing to share their wins, fails and knowledge. You can connect over lunch, attend meet-ups and tech-related events, engage in countless coffee-fueled chats, maybe collaborate on an exciting new project.
