Five years ago, THE ENTERPRISE CENTRE was formed. We had a vision to provide a place and community catering to the needs of small businesses and entrepreneurs. Over the years, many companies and individuals have made this Centre their place of work. Some have grown and moved to larger spaces in our building or other locations, and we are glad to see them thrive and become successful. Some have continued to stay on at the Centre, as it served their business operations well. We are encouraged to see tenants happy and satisfied with the environment and the community at our Centre.
The businesses that have used our facility fall into one of several categories. The first were companies that were already well established. They were looking for small offices with some shared amenities. This helped to keep their cost low compared to the long leases and higher overheads of renting their own office units. There were also companies that were in need of temporary space to accommodate additional staff for new or temporal projects. We were able to assist them as well. Another category was the entrepreneurs whose businesses were growing or were already quite stable in their business operations. Some had decided to move out from their home office to our Centre. Others decided to downsize as they came to realize that they could operate their business with much less overheads at our Centre. Finally, there were the individuals or groups who were launching new business ventures. They wanted to be in a business environment that was conducive for work discipline and to co-work together.
Our goal is to make THE ENTERPRISE CENTRE to be a place where people thrive – along with the economy and society at large. Our core services of providing office space solutions remain the same. We try to make it efficient and cost-effective for businesses operating from our Centre. But we want to do more. We want to truly be a place where people look forward coming to work and enjoy the place of their community. This seems to be a lofty ideal. But if enough people want it and we are intentional to want to make it work, it can become a reality. We look forward to ideas and collaboration with those who are already here or want to be here to share with us this lofty ideal to become a place of community – where business and work is not just about profits and wealth, but of friendships and empowerment. This is what a true community is – where the human enterprise contributes positively to one and another and the community we work in and we all gain from it.
We love to hear from you.
