In May of this year we held the ENP (Enterprising Not for Profit) breakfast in this space. We knew it was the perfect space to build a community hub for change making work. I’d love to say it was a straight line to today’s announcement but that would be untrue. Instead it was a series of ups and downs (down, downs) where a number of people and organizations helped me hold the possibility that although there were challenges, that it would still happen. Although I quit a number of times, the energy was far greater than one person and things would align and move in place to support this idea.
I am so proud to announce that we will be helping to build with Innovation Central Society & Startup PG the Hubspace Community at 1299 Third ave in the City of PG.
Of course, without hesitation David Bird of Integris Credit Union said, ‘how can we help and we will be your founder partner sponsor’. Words of thanks do not even do justice to the gratitude and faith you have in a project that is still in such beta mode.#yourock Integris!
The list continues to grow with my Livework team, Mick, Bobbi, StartupPg peeps – specifically the THINC. Coworking, ICS board & Matt Hutcheon leading the top of the “you made this happen” thank you list.
The business model is rental of leased space for coworking, hotdesks, a place for community to gather. But the intention and vision is a homebase where change makers, the courageous and curious can connect and move the dial forward in our city, region and beyond. Official launch day is Jan 18th! Can’t wait!
Ps. Livework office/studio is still remaining with Bobbi Carpino Photography.
