fSpace & The City of Fremantle Announce Third Business Development Program

fSpace & The City of Fremantle are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for a third Business Development Program. This program will run from July 2017 through to June 2018.  

Continuing on the success of the first two programs, the fSpace & City of Fremantle Business Development Program returns to offer qualified businesses three to six months of subsidised workspace at fSpace.

Over the two previous years, this program has helped over 20 businesses develop and grow in Fremantle.

In addition to the financial support towards a professional workspace, program participants have benefited from the inspiring energy, collaborations with other members, and strong sense of community at fSpace.

This year’s Business Development Program has added optional coaching and mentorship towards developing a formal business plan.

To be eligible, a business must fall within the creative industries sector and be registered with an ABN.

Eligible Creative Industries:

  • Advertising & Marketing
  • Architecture
  • Art and Crafts
  • Design: Product, Graphic and Fashion
  • Film, TV, Video, Radio and Photography
  • IT, Software and Computer Services
  • Music, Performing and Visual Arts
  • Publishing

If your business or idea does not fall on this list but you feel you have something to offer to Fremantle, get in touch.

This program is open to new start-ups and existing small businesses that are looking to expand, grow or relocate within the Fremantle area.

Eligible fSpace plans include fPartTime (3 days a week), fFullTime (24/7 access), and fTeam (2 people, 24/7 access).

Subsidy amounts will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, however participants are expected to contribute 50% of the regular plan costs. Applicants may be asked to present financials and/or business plans to help assess eligibility.
