Enterprise Week will coincide with the launch and tours of sixty27, Joondalup’s co-working space.

It will include, from August 4 to 10, tech talks, digital workshops and networking events.

Hosted by the institute and partner City of Joondalup, Enterprise Week is open to community members, businesses, entrepreneurs and anyone wanting to be part of the emerging digital economy.

It will culminate with the Start-up Weekend, a 54-hour contest for aspiring entrepreneurs to see if their start-up idea is viable.

Institute business development director Ian Martinus said sixty27 was a creative workplace designed to nurture young businesses, entrepreneurs and start-ups.

‘It is designed to help them through the infancy stages of their business and provide them with an opportunity to network and collaborate with other tenants through regular networking activities, events and programs,’ he said.

Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said sixty27 was a first for north metropolitan Perth.

He said the institute-City project would result in a creative workplace.

‘It requires no commute to Perth CBD, boasts stunning lakeside views and is in walking distance of public transport and soon-to-be the largest shopping centre in WA,’ he said.

‘It will be a hub which drives innovation and entrepreneurial activity, and I encourage the local business community, home-based businesses and budding entrepreneurs to embrace the global phenomenon of co-working.’
