About Us


Why did we start the Hub?

Being a business owner and tackling the hurdles and barriers over the last few years in and out of lockdown has made us all look at how we conduct business. 

Working from home was fun, handy and sometimes very useful; however, what we found was that it is not always practical having your office set up on the dining table, nor was it professional to have the dog barking in the background on client call.

Our business was starting to grow and we wanted to find a space that we could offer to those who either wanted to have their own office but be part of something bigger than that, or those who needed distance from ‘working from home’ and needed the professional workspace to focus on their business.

Alongside that, the meeting room makes it more practical for budding entrepreneurs to conduct team meetings, hold training events or meet clients in a professional space instead of the local cafe.
