CEO of Wexford County Council Tom Enright launches The Cube at Wexford Enterprise Centre – a new co-working open plan space for Wexford start-ups
Wexford Enterprise Centre (WEC) is delighted to announce the launch of The Cube; an incubation and co-working space specifically designed for concept and early stage start-ups. The unique space was officially launched yesterday by Wexford County Council CEO Tom Enright.
The Cube will offer local entrepreneurs the opportunity to work from a professional and dynamic co-working space making it the perfect platform from where to work, learn and grow their business. What’s more, those who rent the spaces will receive start-up training and mentoring support from Wexford LEO and Wexford Local Development.
The Cube was conceived and spearheaded by Wexford Enterprise Centre Group Chief Executive Brendan Ennis. Commenting on the launch, Brendan said “We are very excited to be launching The Cube today. A first for Wexford, this co-working space will give concept and early stage start-ups the professional environment they need to get their businesses off the ground. Starting out is never easy especially when you want to gain market penetration and keep costs down. The Cube is ideal as it creates an environment for collaboration and builds a sense of community among its members.”
The Cube consists of ten fully fitted state of the art business cubicles within an open plan space, a separate meeting room, a social area and private storage facilities for peace of mind. For a small charge, members can secure their cube and enjoy high speed broadband, electricity, public liability insurance, free car parking and security. In addition, they will also receive access to Wexford Enterprise Centre facilities such as reception, café, meeting rooms and outdoor exercise zone. Tenancy ranges from 3 months to a maximum of 12 months. Not only are the cubicles available to emerging businesses but a small number are suitable for remote workers wishing to be based within minutes of Wexford Town or those who require satellite office space.
Newly appointed chairman of WEC Eamonn Murphy welcomed guests. He commented “I am honoured to have taken up position of Chairman from Philip Scallan and want to thank him and all previous chair holders for their voluntary time that they have given to make WEC Ireland’s flagship centre for innovation. I want to thank Brendan Ennis and his team for yet again conceiving world class facilities for Wexford Town and we look forward to welcoming new start-ups and early concept businesses to The Cube over the coming months.”
Tom Enright of Wexford County Council was on hand to officially cut the ribbon. He said “The association between Wexford County Council and the Wexford Enterprise Centre goes back over 30 years and this is something that we are very proud of. During that time we have seen the centre develop from modest beginnings to becoming one of Ireland’s leading and most successful enterprise centres. I am delighted to have been asked to launch this innovative facility and I congratulate Brendan Ennis and his team on delivering such an imaginative and professional environment for Wexford based start- ups.”
