Community Enterprise Hub

by Nick Meech

We are currently in the process of designing and building support for a community enterprise hub in Bridport, West Dorset. If you're interested in coworking spaces and supporting local economic resilience, then let us know.

The Community Enterprise Hub will be a new coworking space for socially minded enterprises and individuals whose work has a community benefit.  It will be hub that actively supports the creation of new initiatives (incubator), cultivates existing organisations and businesses (accelerator) and encourages collaborative opportunities between its members.
