THREE Albany business-women have joined forces to create a collective space for entrepreneurs to support each other and collaborate from within.
Ideation Co is the brain-child of Click Collective Brand Agency’s Megan King, Natasha Wilson of Concept Tech IT Specialists, and Be Think Do Mindset Coaching’s Emily Smith.
The thought behind Ideation Co, located in a studio upstairs at 280 York Street, is to give like-minded women a place to “work in, network, unwind and be inspired”.
“Ideation Co is paving the way forward for women entrepreneurs of the Great Southern, transforming the way wen work, collaborate, and connect to ensure the greatest community and economic impact,” Ms King said.
“It’s a vibrant, welcoming and Instagrammable space where they can grow a productive and prosperous business, built on the foundation of a powerful community.”
Ms King said the need for a space like Ideation Co was highlighted during the pandemic.
“Post-Covid, there is now a demand for remote working, as well as a lot of people starting their own businesses from home,” she said.
“The world is undergoing huge shifts in the way we work – changes in technology have led to more people working from home on their own businesses as contractors or sole traders.
“In many bigger centres there are hubs popping up where entrepreneurs can come together in one space to work, collaborate, connect and network.
“Albany needs this space to offer the growing population of people in this category.”
Ideation Co is targeted at entrepreneurs, freelancers, remote workers and small business owners.
The space can also be rented out in the evenings and on weekends for events and functions.
Ideation Co will officially launch at 5.30pm on October 29.
Interested people can register for their free ticket online via Eventbrite or follow the links on Instagram @ideationcoalbany
The evening will include nibbles and champagne and offer guests the opportunity to tour the new space for the first time.
