Today was a very important day: it was the opening of the Llandovery Business Hub by HRH The Prince of Wales, and Aresko was there at the launch.
This is a great local initiative, a long time in the making, which will provide a flexible workspace service to modern small businesses like Aresko, as well as to mobile workers including those who are home based.
The shared facilities now available include:
- bookable desks;
- formal and informal meeting space;
- high speed broadband; and
- access to costly (or space hungry) technical equipment like photocopiers.
The new work hub will also provide an environment that encourages business collaboration and networking, with members exchanging ideas and services and feeling less isolated. It will be an incubator for start-ups in the area with business advice and professional skills training.
This will be a real asset to the town for everyone.
It was great that HRH The Prince of Wales choose it as one of his local visits and he spoke encouragingly about the impact and importance of an initiative like this to our area. It was great to be there and I hope the provision of such services will reap benefits for the local community.
