For soloists and small businesses, setting up office can be a challenging and costly endeavour. It can also be isolating, and leave them without access to professional facilities and services.
Enter SmartSpace: a co-working, community-orientated share space opened on 31 July 2017 at the University of Wollongong Innovation Campus.
The SmartSpace initiative offers premium serviced, co-working spaces, day suites and meeting rooms kitted out with premier telecommunications facilities. It represents a whole new level in shared space offerings in the region, with light-filled, modern spaces and cutting-edge facilities complimented by the prime beachside location, easy access and parking, an engaged community and a full range of amenities on site.
Spaces – which are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week – include access to cutting-edge communications and IT capabilities. Professional reception staff are on hand to meet and greet clients and visitors, answer phones and take messages. Kitchen facilities with complimentary tea and coffee are part of the package, as are electricity, cleaning and maintenance.
Rates also include access to immaculate meeting rooms able to host up to six people and a stunning boardroom for groups of up to 16, with no additional fees applicable. Facilities are embedded with PC-enabled screens, internet connection, full audio-visual capabilities and video conferencing, with optional catering services also available.
All this comes at flexible rates and on simple terms, with no minimum signup.
Along with next-level spaces and facilities, SmartSpace delivers a unique competitive advantage not found elsewhere in the Illawarra: access to the Campus’ phenomenal innovation ecosystem. SmartSpace clients can collaborate with UOW research groups working in areas as diverse as human health, sustainable housing and energy, intelligent materials and maritime law and security. They become part of an engaged business community that includes large commercial groups such as NEC Australia, Commonwealth Bank of Australia and iAccelerate’s entrepreneurs, and can connect with students, graduates and further education opportunities from one of the world’s leading universities.
It’s a smart choice for smart professionals, and it’s ready now.
