Co-working comes to Docklands

29 May 2016

Co-working comes to Docklands Image

Docklands has a new spring in its step thanks to entrepreneurial events that are drawing a new crowd.

On May 11 around 100 people gathered in Docklands first co-working space, Hatch Quarter, to launch a new Melbourne-based startup, GiveGet. Hatch Quarter is on the LaTrobe St side of the Stadium Concourse.

GiveGet is an online services exchange platform that helps entrepreneurs and freelancers exchange their skills to help each other build their businesses.

The launch attracted tech innovators, entrepreneurs, creatives, startup founders and investors from all over Melbourne who, up until now, haven’t been given a lot of opportunity to explore the professional environment in Docklands.

The founders, residents and partners of Hatch Quarter have already successfully conducted networking events, business workshops and informational presentations. These have drawn a great deal of interest and further events have been scheduled for the coming months.

A startup accelerator workshop is also on the way, which will be run by HQ and Mo Works Creative Agency.

Open less than three months, Hatch Quarter has already garnered significant support from the community as well as the Docklands Chamber of Commerce.

By maintaining a community-focused approach, the space will play an important role in activating Docklands and strengthening its business ecosystem.

To keep an eye on the events running at Hatch Quarter, join their Docklands Creative Community on Meetup or subscribe to their newsletter.
