TK is about people, community and collaboration.
The Kollective - TK is New Zealand's largest co-working space dedicated to social impact.
We're here to encourage connection and collaboration that leads to success for not for profit, social enterprise and charitable organisations.
We're about working together in areas that afford and create mutual benefit. We're about understanding each other and taking the time to explore where collaborative opporunity might lie. We're about imagining something better, something that makes a better world and the knowledge that if we think about 'we', instead of 'me', well that's where the cool stuff happens.
TK has 3 big picture goals
1. To create and enable collaborative practice opportunity among member organisations, particularly those that benefit our aims around social impact and societal improvement.
2. To model operations that develop an organisation's ability to serve clients more effectively.
3. To do all of the above sustainably and in a manner that reduces our impact on the planet.
We enable connection and collaboration
By offering a range of workshops and training, informative gatherings and networking sessions as well as fun and inspiring social events.
We look to be an example of operational practice
We seek efficiency of systems and processes designed to work for everyone, as well as modelling digitisation and advising organisations in best and efficient use of technology.
We seek to model sustainability
Our landfill waste is reduced through use of our 10 recycle stations and our worm farms.
Our building is thermally efficient with excellent use of daylight ensuring a reduced consumption of energy.
We have e-bikes, e-scooters and an e-car available in an effort to encourage alternative transport solutions.
TK Member Values
Want to be part of an environment where communication and collaboration is encouraged?
TK is a place where daily interactions become a matter of connecting with friends in a collegial atmosphere. It’s a place where co-working is beneficial. It allows organisations to become more efficient, more technically capable, sustainable, able to connect and provide invaluable services.
TK’s journey started in 2014 when TECT first developed the idea after receiving feedback from the community who saw value in a co-working facility, but also deliver a space where organisations could thrive by the sharing of knowledge and collaboration, dividing the costs and multiplying the benefits.
TECT provides support for local initiatives, facilities and events that bring vibrancy and connectedness to our region. It’s funding brings life to grassroots organisations and large-scale multi-million-dollar projects alike.
At TECT, we’re proud that TK is one of those projects - an impact investment that is changing our community for the better.
SociaLink was established in 2012 at the request of the social and community sector to support and empower the work of community organisations in the Western Bay of Plenty. Our vision is “a resourced, skilled and cohesive for-purpose sector enabling communities to flourish”.
We deliver a range of services, including the management of The Kollective, Volunteering Services, Community Insights (Using data dashboards to work with community organisations and improve their ability to effectively utilise internal and external data), advocacy for the sector and organisational support and advice in all aspects of operations to achieve great impact on social issues.
