A COLLABORATIVE workspace and education hub has opened in Butler.
Co-Hub Collaborative Education Hub aims to service the north coast region of budding entrepreneurs, micro and small business owners, managers and students to work collaboratively and achieve goals.
Located on Kingsbridge Boulevard, it offers access to ‘hot desks’, meeting and seminar rooms, casual and facilitated collaboration sessions with like-minded people, experts and advisors, weekly workshops about building and leading a sustainably successful business and mentoring.
There are also Certificate IV and diploma programs for youngsters, aimed at “life after school”, as well as teen memberships for students to have a study space and access to a careers counsellor.
Founder Rebecca Mason said there had been “a clear gap in what was being provided to our community by way of an incubator and hub that encouraged and supported co-working and collaboration”.
She said she hoped to expand the service and have a co-hub in “every community area that we can and requires one”.
The facility is open from 9am to 5pm Mondays to Fridays.
In June 2019, Rebecca Mason agreed to repay money she accepted from clients of a separate business she operated, Mason Migration, under a payment plan supervised by Consumer Protection.
Ms Mason signed an enforceable undertaking that agreed by June 30 to pay $20,955 to Consumer Protection to distribute the funds to five clients.
