Today GridAKL is one building strong! Our first permanent building, the Lysaght building, came online in late 2015, providing a range of ways for innovative humans to connect and collaborate. This building was crafted with the learnings of our previous home in the Polperro building in mind, and is the heart of our future GridAKL plans.
As you come through the doors you walk into our soon to be opened tech cafe, designed to provide a space for collaboration, connection and collision for everyone from established leaders grabbing a coffee, and pre-startups grabbing a place to work.
Down the hall, our event space provides a base for a myriad of regular events, and an affordable entrance point for people to start events that share their vision with the wider tech, innovation and startup community.
Lysaght also houses BizDojo @ GridAKL, providing a coworking space for 52 resident businesses, working across the breadth of innovation - from social enterprise right through to cloud video production. A diverse community, of clever companies, amazing individuals, startups, stayups and more.
