At the beginning of the year we started asking our residents for feedback - we asked “What’s working and what’s not working.” 

As well as some really lovely feedback (which we will share shortly in our social media), there were some items we were able to action or fix, and some we are still working on. One of the outcomes from doing this was to create a Basestation Mana Enhancing Understanding.

Mt Everest Challange 2024

Basestation residents and friends took part in this year's Mount Everest challenge!

Now in its 10th year, this annual challenge sets the goal of going up Mount Maunganui 38 times in 50 days (the equivalent to climbing Mount Everest) You can do this solo or as part of a team.

We had 15 Basestation residents, staff, friends, and whānau taking part in this year's Everest Challenge.  After doing some calculations we worked out that between us all we climbed up Mauao 237 times!

 

Small Business Day 9th April is about celebrating, supporting and championing the heart and soul of kiwi communities - small businesses.

We sat down with two residents who own a small business, we asked what they do, how coworking helps them to do this, and what it means to own a small business. 

Below is the kōrero we had with Andrew Mahon, Director and Owner of MOCA. MOCA is a web development company based in Tauranga and employs seven staff and two contractors (all New Zealand based).

Although it seems like a distant memory, the impact Covid had has forever changed the way we work. For those of us who traditionally worked an ‘office’ job, options to work remotely or hybrid have now become commonplace. 

To begin with, working from home seemed like an amazing opportunity with many positives!

Over the last few years Basestation has asked its residents to contribute non-perishable goods, toiletries and monetary donations to Under the Stars - a local charitable organisation that works alongside Tauranga’s homeless and in need.

 Last night the Basestation residents all got together for the annual Basestation Christmas Party in the Babbage Space. Hosting a Christmas Party with our residents has been a long held tradition at Basestation.

Meet the Team... kia ora Ruth!

Ruth is new to Tauranga, having moved from the big smoke of Auckland.  Originally from the U.K. Ruth has embraced Aotearoa New Zealand and is proud to call it her home. We're excited to have Ruth join the Basestation family and can't wait for her to make her mark.

Basestation Co-Founder Steven is a man of many talents. With so many things on the go at once, he can be hard to pin down.  But we managed to catch him on the run to have a quick chat.
