1ST ASSEMBLY IS WELLINGTON'S FIRST HARDWARE COMMUNITY AND STARTUP HUB, BASED IN LOWER HUTT. 

1st Assembly is a community of like-minded designers, engineers, craftspeople and entrepreneurs who collaborate to foster hardware innovation, economic development and social good. Our expertise extends across multiple industries from product design, UX design and electrical engineering.

We work alongside one another within a coworking space equipped with all the essential facilities, such as fast internet, 3D printers and meeting rooms, supported by Creative HQ and the Hutt City Council. Our culture encourages curiosity, inclusiveness and experimentation that challenges standards and address problems.

We are actively building our co-working community, if working amongst some of the region's brightest inventors sounds like you please don't hesitate to get in touch.
