Level six will host a virtual reality and an augmented reality lab providing a platform for people designing new technology in what is anticipated to be a rapid growth area. Level seven will house an agriculture technology hub (Agtech) focused on connecting startups and entrepreneurs working on technology with large agricultural companies. Spacecubed founder Brodie McCulloch said over the past 12 months FLUX has quickly become a centre for scale up companies with members in the growth phase of their business. “It has become the home of larger corporates setting up innovation and project teams including Navitas Ventures and Microsoft, who are tapping into the FLUX community of entrepreneurs and their ideas,” Mr McCulloch said. “FLUX has also hosted hundreds of events and meetups from drone technology to fashion tech and recently hosted the closing event for the Social Impact Festival 2017. ”Spacecubed has formed a partnership with Hawaiian focussing on supporting entrepreneurship and innovation through spaces, community and learning.
Hawaiian Chief Executive Officer Russell Gibbs said Hawaiian and FLUX share common values and a desire to connect people and places, so our association is a natural fit. “We are proud to be involved with such an innovative business concept helping to grow opportunities here in Perth. “Hawaiian owns and operates three office buildings in the CBD. We believe it is important for each of these spaces to function as more than a place of work. Each building has its own unique nature which aims to encourage collaboration and gives the opportunity for our tenants to stop and connect.” Mr Gibbs said.
Spacecubed Director Matt Macfarlane said the partnership with Hawaiian reinforces the alignment of Spacecubed’s goals with those of one of WA’s premier landlords.
“The future of coworking is very bright and this development is a significant step forwards for Perth,” Mr Macfarlane said.
