Penrith’s most unique and innovative co-working venue, The Creative Fringe is going to be trialing a truly radical idea. “Pay what you want” for a desk in the months of March and April 2017, it is an initiative that the progressive team at The Creative Fringe have come up with to help small business owners afford to hire a desk in their inspiring space.
“Business is tough and we have seen so many amazing business owners come and go over the almost three years that we have been open,” commented Community Manager Rienna Kroh. “Most of them leave as they have struggled to find the extra funds in their budget to pay for a desk, despite their increase in productivity and their love of the space and people they’ve met.”
The Creative Fringe team has been utilising their out of the box thinking abilities to come up with an innovative idea that has never been seen in Penrith before. The initiative will be trialed throughout the month of March where business owners will be able to head into The Creative Fringe, hire a desk, have access to NBN wifi, use the meeting rooms, breakout areas, free tea and coffee, not to mention connecting and collaborating with others in the space, all for a ‘pay what you want’ price.
“The Creative Fringe is more than a co-working space. It’s a safe place for business owners to come and be inspired, were they can collect with our community and grow their businesses”, said founder and CEO Debbie O’Connor. “We have watched great friendships and lucrative collaborations come out of our space – it’s what naturally happens when you bring progressive, like-minded people together.”
This concept will be trialed for the months of March and April. If the Penrith business community embraces it, The Creative Fringe will continue to use this model for all hot desk hiring in the future.
