Co-working spaces working to build a ‘yes’ culture
UpStart is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to work in an open plan space free from the distractions of home in an environment where they can connect with and learn from like-minded people.
For example, entrepreneur A might be great at grant writing, whilst entrepreneur B might be great at marketing and social media. By co-locating, entrepreneur A and entrepreneur B can share their experience and skills to increase the likelihood that their businesses will succeed.
Co-directors Deb Bogenhuber and James Price are also looking to make workshops available in the space to build new skills in local entrepreneurs.
UpStart was created to develop a ‘yes’ culture and foster a dynamic and supportive start-up community that allows new ideas to flourish. Like the Innovation Awards, UpStart is part of a larger movement to promote a culture of innovation in Mildura.
It is important that Mildura brings the younger generation along with them in this journey. Many of the skills that innovators need are the same skills that our kids will need to thrive in the future workforce.
We want to find out more about different communities are doing to help their kids build these skills. If you know of a similar initiative in your area, we want to know about it. Email us at [email protected] or leave a comment below.
