Shared space

Element - - Business -

The Kitchen, a com­mon of­fice space for so­cial en­trepreneurs and busi­nesses, is coming close to hav­ing full ten­ancy in its Pon­sonby of­fices just af­ter cel­e­brat­ing its first birth­day. Lim­ited to those com­pa­nies and in­di­vid­u­als who are cre­at­ing pos­i­tive so­cial and en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact and at­tempt­ing in­spir­ing so­lu­tions to con­tem­po­rary prob­lems, among the mem­bers are a com­pany build­ing fur­ni­ture from waste tim­ber from the Christchurch earth­quakes, a wind en­ergy com­pany and a rooftop gar­dens start-up. The Kitchen was also a fi­nal­ist in last year’s So­cial En­tre­pre­neur cat­e­gory at the Sus­tain­able Busi­ness Net­work Awards.
