How We Started

Innovate Central was born from the creative vision of Kat and Dave Roberts and a desire to step out of the confines of home offices and connect with the vibrant community of Taupō.

Nestled at the heart of Taupō, Innovate Central is a dynamic and collaborative space. The goal was to be more than co-working - with private offices, meeting rooms, content studio and the atrium area for co working & small events, Innovate Central brings together the best of Taupō's small business owners! We also welcome out of town guests who need somewhere to work temporarily!

Kat & Dave moved to Taupō in 2022, after selling their business in Tauranga. With a large, busy family, the easygoing Taupō lifestyle appealed to them, and they haven't looked back.

Innovate Central core focus is its members and community, with an inclusive approach, we welcome you to come, connect and grow your business here!
