Creative HQ - 1st Assembly

We coach hardware startups from napkin to production and provide open access to Creative HQ’s longstanding growth programmes, such as Lightning Lab and Venture Up, and the Hutt City Council’s development initiatives, including Success Test, Lunch and Learn and Business Bootcamp. 1st Assembly is here to strengthen the hardware startup community and manufacturing industry within Hutt City and New Zealand.

We provide all the essential facilities, tools and advice every hardware startup needs, like fast internet, 3D printers, workbenches and meeting rooms, to foster your development and growth. We also connect you with designers, engineers and experts within our rich network.

Our community is united by a culture that encourages curiosity and innovation.
