I’m excited to see the co-working phenomenon add another Perth office space to its burgeoning portfolio. Flux will bring the number of desks under Spacecubed’s umbrella to about 340 across Perth. More recently there has been a further announcement that mining magnate, Charlie Bass will open a multimillion-dollar not-for-profit research hub, called the Centre for Entrepreneurial Research and Innovation (CERI) next year. Located on Stirling Highway, a stone’s throw from the University of WA, the CERI building will house university-associated researchers selected by Mr Bass and a panel of experts, in the hope of turning their WA-built research ideas into businesses. I see this an encouraging movement towards innovation and encourage like-minded innovators to access these hubs.

Loving the 'can do' attitude of this government and have everything crossed it sees sustained benefits for the start-up community.
