SINCE Natalie Carter started as manager of the Y.hub in June there have been some new events businesses can take part in adding to the initiatives already offered by the coworking business hub.
Some of the events are ongoing such as the monthly BusinessPlus Morning Tea Network Locally Yanchep group run by Lisa Byfield.
In the past two months some of the businesses and not-for-profits to participate include It’s Cookie Time, Kinetic Landscaping, Yanchep Institute, DNA OF Business, Commando Coffee, Uniting WA Financial Wellbeing Service, Logistics Settlements, Chocolate Drops, Cakes & Treats by Moshmi, APM Communities Optimum VA and Aussie Natural Spring Water.
On International Coworking Day on August 13 Access Training Academy manager Charmaine Van Den Heever and some of her students used their recently-learnt beauty skills to do a day makeup look on some entrepreneurs and then took professional photos for their business profiles.
Ms Carter said her role was to help the Y.hub collaborate stronger connections with local startup businesses, offer alternative learning opportunities and foster innovation through new activations and learning experiences.
Ms Carter said Y.hub Coworking, which has been powered by Spacecubed since its inception, was now working together on a bigger scale, enabling businesses in the northern suburbs to have access to innovation in Western Australia by taking ideas to market more quickly.
They offer options through their plus eight program by empowering Australian founder and business leaders to deliver on ground breaking ideas and She Codes by increasing diversity in tech by inspiring women.
Y.hub is a Yanchep Beach Joint Venture (YBJV) initiative that homes a range of exciting projects and opportunities, not for just members, but for the wider community.
This includes, but is not limited to, hosting the local honey bee product innovation group, coordinated by the Cooperative Research Centre for Honey Bee Products (CRCHBP), hosting the second annual CRCHBP Honey Hackathon and home to other outreach services by community organisations.
As well as this, YBJV is home to Yanchep Institute, a specialised registered training organisation (RTO).
With a focus to serve the community by collaborating strong, positive connections with schools, families, local businesses and industry partners, Yanchep Institute offers relevant learning opportunities for students, responds to the needs of employers and provides modern, state-of the art, safe training facilities.
Their current courses include Foundation Skills, White Card, and Introduction to Beekeeping.
The Two Rocks Yanchep Residents Association meets at the Y.hub every second month and the City of Wanneroo has city officers there on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays to answer community inquiries from 8.30am to 4pm.
