Spacecubed is happy to announce our first “Office Hours” partnership with Business Foundations Inc who are providing a Business Advisor one day a week based in Spacecubed.
Lachy Richie is based in Spacecubed and available through appointment (details below) and offers a valuable service to Spacecubed members. Having onsite business advisory helps Spacecubed deliver great services to Startups and people with ideas in Perth.
For more than 20 years, Business Foundations has trained and mentored small businesses in the Southern Suburbs, providing one on one advice and skill based workshops for businesses at all stages of maturity.
Business Foundations have now decided to expand its free advisory services to the Perth CBD, and have asked Lachy to work out of Spacecubed as their CBD advisor. Lachys role is to provide support to people to help them to take their idea from a short term project or hobby and turn it into a genuine, profit generating enterprise.
The City of Perth has set a target that, by 2018, there will be an 8% increase in small business and a jump in creative industry workers by 20% but Phillip Kemp, Business Foundations Executive Director expects this number to be much higher.
“Our role now is to provide the business support that people need to take their idea from a short-term project or a hobby into a genuine enterprise that will grow, generate income and lead to future employment.”
Having an advisory system in the Perth CBD will help small organisations to develop in a more realistic fashion, especially with the examples of small business already finding a foothold in the CBD.
Lachy is in Spacecubed every Wednesday. To book an appointment, call 9430 8569.
