Our AMBITION for business - Kaupapa
Innov8HQ is Dunedin's Smart Business Hub and Collaborative Work space, founded by the Renata siblings of blended Māori and European ancestry. Culture is at the heart of everything that Innov8HQ stands for and developing a business model that would use tradition to impact business experiences was key.

Innov8HQ's coworking culture is one that represents the beautiful weave of Māori tradition in the business landscape. Marae (meeting places) have existed for thousands of years and it is symbolic in how Innov8HQ celebrates this tradition and rituals in the the coworking revolution.

The kaupapa (purpose) at Innov8HQ is all about supporting small medium enterprises and entrepreneurs to build and grow their business in an ecosystem soaked with collaboration and innovation.
Innov8HQ has been brought to life in Vogel Street, delivering a stunning workspace  that continuously evolves a trends change, bringing with it a culture that encourages and embraces - Individuality and Creativity and Collaboration, by bringing great minds together to achieve great outcomes.
