Do you have a business or a business idea that you would like to grow or develop? The Sourdough Innovation Hub, located within the Byron Community College complex in Mullumbimby, is now refurbished and ready to help you get your innovative business ideas up and running.
‘We are creating an dynamic business space to support business development and innovation. We are ready to support businesses who are looking to move into their next phase of expansion with a current product or service , this could be expanding to interstate or international distribution,’ said Paul Jameson has been involved in setting up an alternative business innovation hub following NORTECs withdrawal from the site.
They are also keen to hear about new business ideas that people are wanting to develop.
The innovation hub will be providing businesses with a range of possible options from hot-desking to subsidised business space. Businesses can also access a range of other services including mentoring, marketing and legal advice as well as advice on accounting, IT and human resources among others.
‘We are creating a business cluster where there are opportunities for developing businesses to potentially share supply chains, network and collaborate,’ said Paul.
‘The cluster of businesses will create a whole that is greater than its parts.’
They are interested in hearing from businesses that are in a growth phase and have aspects of innovation, sustainability and employment outcomes as part of their strategy.
‘We will be providing mentoring through a structured plan to help them meet their objectives and provide them with a range of tools to help them grow,’ said Stuart Picken, who is co-ordinating the incubator site.
Opportunities for offsite businesses are also available through workshops, business engagement and networking with public events that will focus on business development.
