Torfaen council has teamed up with the co-working network Indycube to offer affordable office space for small businesses, new start-ups and social enterprises, at the Corn Bin in Garndiffaith.
The Corn Bin comprises three storeys of shared open-plan office space, which is designed to allow entrepreneurs to work together and benefit from a co-working environment.
Businesses all have access to furniture, Wi-Fi and meeting rooms, and the support of the council’s business support team.
Indycube currently has 11 co-working spaces across south Wales, including at the Spring Board Business Innovation Centre in Cwmbran.
Founder Mark Hooper, said: “We aim to create environments where people can work alongside others and bounce ideas off each other. People are much more productive when they can see others working and the social interaction that we offer can inspire people and help them to further their own business.
“Our spaces in smaller, more rural areas are very important, and taking up a place in Indycube Corn Bin could set you on track to successfully develop and manage your own business, in a place where it really matters.”
Councillor Gwyneira Clark, executive member for housing, planning and public protection, said: “It is fantastic to see this space available for small businesses. The office accommodation looks first class, and I hope that it encourages budding entrepreneurs to come together with liked minded people, share ideas, and grow their businesses.”
Deputy leader of Torfaen Council, Lewis Jones, said: “It is great to see the Corn Bin put to use as high-quality office space and I am sure it will be a great asset to the area.”
The new building will also be used as part of the Enterprise Facilitation project, a personal business support programme designed to help budding entrepreneurs achieve their dream of starting their own business.
Rent is just £10 per day per person, or £150 per month plus VAT. If you are interested in finding out more about Indycube Corn Bin visit http://indycube.com
