A FORMER Wangara-based business is the first to move into a co-working space in Wanneroo.
Aboriginal Procurement Solutions operates from the recently opened Hybrid 935, a share-work environment at Enterprise House run by the Wanneroo Business Association with support from City of Wanneroo.
Director Dwayne Rowland said his business had outgrown its shared facility in Wangara but could not commit to larger premises yet.
“In this phase of our business, we are always looking at ways to save costs, innovate and network,” he said.
“The Hybrid has great facilities and all hours’ access.”
He said it offered modern, cost effect and central facilities.
“We love that the shared workspace creates an environment of collaboration as well as having access to training and meeting rooms,” he said.
“It is easy to become so busy in the running of your small business that you tend to miss the opportunity to network and engage with your peers.
“This facility allows that networking and it gives you real comfort when you know the facility has the support of the association as well as the entire City of Wanneroo team.”
About 60 people helped launch the space last month, including association president Vesna Sampson, the City’s advocacy and economic development manager Ian Martinus and Mayor Tracey Roberts.
Ms Sampson said previously that the space would offer inspiration and education to small to medium-sized business, freelancer, start-ups and entrepreneurs.
“It’s where innovation can happen and where ideas can be seeded and nurtured,” she said.
