Advice and information on
The economic impacts of the coronavirus are significant for many of us in the Kiwi business community.
At The Icehouse we've always believed that our community does best when we pull together. There are several practical ways that we are responding to the virus and the associated economic impact:
- Adjusting our coworking space, programmes and events to reflect Ministry of Health Guidelines and/or exceed the guidelines to follow international best practises.
- Connecting and advocating for our community to find and highlight resources, support and opportunities.
- Rapidly creating new services and resources that can help businesses that are feeling the impact the hardest.
