Does anyone know any good co-working space in Auckland?  Either CBD or North Shore would be good.

Whiteboard and close proximity to coffee shop would be essential :)

Yeah, Newmarket is fine too :)

I'm looking for a place in/near CBD where I could drop in to work or have a meeting etc. (the casual daily plan at AltSpace basically describes my needs - http://www.altspace.co.nz/)

It's kind of hard to hunt for a quiet coffee shop for meetings that require lots of discussion and sometimes illustrations.

Hi Mate

Are you still looking for good co-working space in central Auckland?
Do you know of other people also looking for such?

We have been looking for people to set up a group just of Symonds St that is aimed at creating an environment of shared work and ideals.

We have a space which can fit about 25-30 people and have been looking for people for the last few weeks. So far got about 7 people with genuine interest.

Are you still interested?

Sorry for the delay reply, been at Code Camp and Tech Ed!

I'm still searching, not super urgently but keenly keeping an eye open for place with good atomsphere and people.

Where about on Symond street? I need to be in close proximity to good coffee places and parking ;)

Fred Wilson (from the blog, A VC) has a pretty good write-up of the ideal co-working environment (http://bit.ly/crlzwJ)

What we have is at the top end of Symonds St, about 200ish metres from the nearest Cafe's, Sushi, Dairy's etc. We are currently looking for people to join us in this office.

What sort of work are you into? What are your interests?

We just really want to create the most awesome environment for people interested in startup, entrepreneurship and business in general.

We are also looking at doing the things like the startup weekends, Jelly's, and much of the stuff which is mentioned in http://www.nwcny.com/ this link.

I'm a software developer, focusing mostly in the XRM space, currently building a bespoke CRM solutions for the talent management space, and will most likely productize it soon. I'm mostly platform neutral in terms of technology, but I do spend an awful lot of time on Microsoft's stuff :)

Hey mate sounds good. 

Bizdojo is good and interesting, we have been talking with them. Also the building they are in is awesome.

PM me and we could meet up and actually discuss what your interested in etc.

Also aiming for Friday the 1st of October, we are just speaking to people to have a start up networking/ pitching night. Basically $10 (to cover some beers and food) and we hoping for about 30+ people who are interested in (and preferable have already started) startups. Also anyone you know who might be interested can PM me too.

Cheers.

Yep, I'd be keen to meet like-minded people.  Have you posted the event on NZ online Start-Up community?
