It’s about sustainability, business and creating opportunity and they are looking for your help to come up with the name that represents it all.

Following NORTECs withdrawal from their small incubation site in Mullumbimby it has now been taken over by Sourdough and is undergoing a refurbishment and they are looking to get their first tenants onto the new business incubation site by the end of February.

‘The refurbishment of the old CLIC business village is proceeding rapidly,’ aid community representative Paul Jameson.

With the surprise withdrawal of NORTEC is has left a short lead time to get everything ready for clients and they are looking for suggestions of what the site should be called.

‘It started with the name CLIC business village, then Mullumbimby innovation hub and a host of other names like the courtyard, The gateway, The sustainability centre and Mullum central.

Square donkey got a good run until we realised it means idiot in polish,’ continued Paul with a laugh.

With an exciting prize, yet to be announced, they are asking everyone in the community to come up with some interesting and dynamic names for the new business innovation site.

Sourdough spokesman mark Holden explained, ‘The name should reflect our mission and that is all about growing innovative and sustainable businesses and creating enterprise and jobs in our Byron region. It could be geographic, historic, descriptive, inspirational or a bit quirky: A name that the community will identify with and become a source of pride.’

And the prize is…

‘Glorification at our gala opening with complementary champagne and a $100 prize if an acceptable logo is included.,’ said Paul.

‘The CLIC Board will adjudicate and have final decision.’

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
