Powered by Impact

As part of Basestation’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) we sponsor or offer in-kind support to initiatives, events or groups that align with our kaupapa. One of these is Powered by Impact - a podcast series set up by one of our residents, Bryar Stewart from The Icehouse. Powered by Impact is Bryar’s side hustle and passion, we wrote a blog about her drive to get the podcast up and running earlier this year as part of our International Women’s Day series.

We are fortunate that Basestation attracts a number of people who are from overseas. This contributes to the diverse and inclusive culture we seek to foster in our coworking space. With Bastille Day (Fête nationale française if you are French!) coming up on Sunday 14th July, we thought it would be a good excuse to kōrero with one of our French residents. 

Meet Charlotte Grosjean from Bark Limited, she has a permanent desk at Basestation and has been with us since January 2023. She started off in a single office on our first floor but after a few months moved down to our ground floor to join the open plan hot desk space.

Connection and Kai at Basestation

Part of the human condition is to be social and find connection and belonging. 

With remote working on the rise, more people are looking to join a coworking space so they can connect with others on a regular basis rather than just working from home. 

At Basestation we understand the importance of connection and belonging, so we host regular events and opportunities for our residents to connect, network and create belonging together. Here are just some of the events, initiatives and opportunities we've hosted or got behind in the last 6 months!

International residents - Kurt Cordice

We are fortunate that at Basestation we attract a number of people who are from overseas. This contributes to the diverse and inclusive culture we seek to foster in our coworking space. With Canada Day coming up on Monday 1st July, we thought it would be a good excuse to kōrero with one of our Canadian residents.

Meet Kurt Cordice from Enigmatic Global, he is a regular user of our hot desks at Basestation and has been with us since 2017.


All our meeting rooms at Basestation are named after people who have made a huge contribution to the advances in technology.

Our first floor meeting room, which can accommodate up to 8 people, is named after Alan Turing, an English mathematician and computer scientist.

As it’s Pride Month, we figured now would be a good time to write a short blog about Turing’s contribution to the computer age and also understand the challenges he faced in his personal life.

Building community - Repair Cafe

Basestation is passionate about building community - especially if it supports sustainability. 

For the last few years Basestation has been hosting the Tauranga Repair Cafe. We help sponsor this monthly event by providing access to the Babbage Event Space, which is also home to Tinkd Makerspace. 

As it’s Pride Month, it seemed like a good time to share how we aim to create a safe and welcoming space at Basestation for all our residents. We have recently joined the Safe Space Alliance and they provide a helpful range of resources for companies to use.
