Larger Coworking Operators in Lower Hutt See coworking companies with multiple locations in Lower Hutt
Perched in the Wellington Region of the North Island of New Zealand, Lower Hutt is 1 of 4 cities that constitute the Wellington metropolitan area. Separated from the city of Wellington by the harbor and from Upper Hutt by the Taitā Gorge, Lower Hutt sits in the lower half of Hutt Valley along the eastern shores of Wellington Harbor. It's the 7th most populated city in New Zealand with about 105,900 souls meandering its streets, indulging in coffee in a cafe or getting busy in a coworking venue. Home to the first permanent lighthouse to be built in New Zealand, its inaugural operator was New Zealand's only female lighthouse keeper, Mary Jane Bennett.
New Zealand is being touted as the tech crowd's favourite "end-of-days" refuge due to the coveted private jet escape routes from other countries. Whether this is true or not doesn't really matter but the fact that the number of work visas granted to American techies is on the rise, may raise some eyebrows. New Zealand has become the land of edgy tech stuff that hasn't been tried before amidst the coffee culture of Wellington and the beautiful unspoiled landscape of Queenstown. Once upon a time New Zealand's distance from the rest of the world was a big hurdle, but today there are plenty of high-net-worth individuals relocating to its shores believing that it will be the one place where you can survive the "end of the world" (aka nuclear weapon assaults).
Starting a business in New Zealand can be done in 20 seconds (well almost) and there are plenty of angel investors hanging around its shores looking for the next big thing to put their money into. The country is small and nimble and recently topped the World Bank's annual Ease of Doing Business rankings for being the most conducive to starting a business, registering property and securing credit. With all of this chit chat going on about New Zealand, it's little wonder that coworking venues are overflowing with techie souls who have their bomb bunkers in place, even those in Lower Hutt.
