A short time after finding out about Hub Melbourne I went to their Bourke Street coworking space for one of their bi-weekly open house sessions where they give you a tour, show you the space (it’s very stylish and practical too), and explain how they operate.
Depending which open house you attend you can go to the weekly event that follows, either a traditional mixed bag lunch on a Thursday when everyone who wants to attend brings something to share. It’s a great time to network and also catch up with fellow hubbers as well as open house visitors.
If you come along to the Friday 4pm open house session, you can then join the ‘wine down’ drinks which start at 5pm. They’re a great way to wind down the traditional working week in true Hub style. Mind you Hub‘s not really a traditional place and that’s the whole point. It’s a new and different way to work, network, collaborate, innovate and have some fun along the way.
I really liked the vibe at Hub Melbourne.
My personal coworking experience was about to begin. I was finalising my decision as to which coworking space felt right for me to kick off my new small business.
The three spaces I had checked out, Inspire9, York Butter Factory and Hub Melbourne are all great coworking spaces in their own way. They’re not the only coworking spaces in and around Melbourne, there are a growing number of coworking spaces cropping up. More about them later. The vibe at each one will help you decide which one’s for you.
I had made my decision. The next step was to join up.
