Glen Innes Highlands Business & Community HUB
HIGHLANDS HUB is a project to bring a shared business and community HUB to Glen Innes.
WHERE WE CONNECT, CREATE, INNOVATE & GROW
The Glen Innes Highlands Business & Community Hub (Physical) project will create a central place where community and council come together with a common purpose of creating a thriving local economy and a socially prosperous community.
This is a key initiative from the new Economic Development Strategy 2020-2040 and Action Plan 2020-2025 for Glen Innes Highlands. An application for funding has been submitted to the BLER Fund on 28 January 2021 and BBRF.
The funding would enable te fit-out for an inspiring training facility to run workshops and programs, as well as enabling the attraction of more conferences and business events. The funding would enable programs to be conducted at the Hub that support the breadth of community needs including a start-up incubator.
Glen Innes Highlands Business and Community Hub (Digital) is a project that creates a Business and Community Hub utilising the Localised platform to provide our community with a central online space where they can connect, support and collaborate from each other with the objective of reducing local economic leakage through the ‘marketplace’ function.
The Highlands Hub – Business was launched in April 2020 and now has 78 businesses registered on the platform.
Did you know that we lose $200,000,000 out of our local economy every year? If 20% of that was retained locally an additional $56 million would be circulating in our local economy each year.
That means more business growth, more profits and more jobs. We've funded a digital platform through the Bushfire Recovery Agency to provide our community with a game-changing tool to assist local business to connect and increase their revenue from within the community.
