GridAKL is more than just a place.
It is a community of innovation.
GridAKL is part of the innovation precinct in Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter, designed to maximise innovation by harnessing the power of collaboration. Creating pathways for innovative individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses to connect, share ideas and access the tools they need to help them grow.
“Over the last 10 years, the sector has witnessed 25% growth. ICT and Digital Media accounts for 3.2% employment in Auckland or 1 in 30 jobs. Half (48%) of New Zealand’s ICT companies are based in Auckland, employing 37,000 people. GridAKL’s role is to assist high-impact, growth-orientated, technology-focused businesses and entrepreneurs to develop and commercialise their innovations.” – Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development
