(10/2/16) City of Fremantle & fSpace join forces to support creative small businesses

The City of Fremantle and local co-working space provider fSpace are pleased to announce the launch of an innovative new business incubator program to help small businesses within the creative industries sector.

The City of Fremantle and fSpace Creative Industries Program offers qualified businesses three months of subsidised workspace at fSpace, a vibrant co-working space located in the heart of Fremantle.

To be eligible, a business must satisfy a number of criteria, the most important being that they operate within the creative industries sector. Architecture, IT & software/computer services, design (graphic, fashion or product); and film, TV & video are just a few examples of creative industries.

The program will help small business owners looking to take the next step by subsidising their workspace costs and providing them with an opportunity to work alongside and collaborate with other successful business owners and professionals.

“The City views the continuing emergence of creative industries in Fremantle as a key driver in Fremantle’s ongoing rejuvenation,” said Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt.

“The partnership with fSpace is a great fit for us and we look forward to being able to help kick-start some innovative local businesses that hopefully go on to become industry leaders.”

Sabine Albers, owner of fSpace, said she was excited to be partnering with the City to help creative businesses.

“Each month, people come into fSpace wanting to start their own business but struggle with the financial commitment to make a go of it,” Sabine said.

“This program will provide the opportunity for people to work alongside some fantastic entrepreneurs at fSpace and will help get innovative business ideas off the ground or take an existing venture to the next level.”

The program is available to new business start-ups as well as existing businesses looking to develop and grow in Fremantle.
