fSpace 3rd Birthday
It’s our birthday next month! fSpace turns 3 on July 1. No more terrible 2’s for us!

fSpace would like to thank all our business owners and awesome entrepreneurs, (past and present) for their support. Their passion, energy and enthusiasm are why fSpace has become such an incredible coworking community in Fremantle.

fSpace is growing as we enter our 4th year. We now have over 30 businesses from various industries working from fSpace. But more than the number of businesses, we are most pleased with the quality of the people who honour us by being part of our community.

fSpace is inspired by our members and I thank them for their passion, energy and open support of one another. It is thanks to our members that fSpace has become such an inspiring and motivating community of professionals and small business owners.

fSpace looks forward to continuing to inspire, motivate and support people as they chase their professional dreams. That’s another reason to celebrate!

Cheers everyone!


fSpace as a finalist

By | City of Fremantle, Entrepreneur, Event, fSpace | No Comments


The Fremantle Chamber of Commerce recently organised another great event, The Fremantle Business Awards for 2016. Held at the Esplanade Hotel in Fremantle, a broad and colourful selection of Fremantle’s business community gathered to celebrate their hard work and achievements in business.

The Esplanade Hotel filled up with business owners and entrepreneurs, most of whom looked spectacular having dressed to the theme of the film Casino Royale. Bright lights, classic Bond music, casino ballroom décor and even a shiny new Aston Martin all made the event something to behold.

fSpace was a finalist for the Excellence in Professional Services Awards. Although we didn’t walk away with the award (or drive away in the car), we did leave feeling even more inspired thanks to the other finalists and winners.

fSpace is ready for another year of great community, inspiration and success!

City of Fremantle & fSpace join forces

By | City of Fremantle, fSpace, Special Offer, Startups | No Comments

Australia Royals

The City of Fremantle and local co-working space provider fSpace are pleased to announce the launch of an innovative new business incubator program to help small businesses within the creative industries sector.

The City of Fremantle and fSpace Creative Industries Program offers qualified businesses three months of subsidised workspace at fSpace, a vibrant co-working space located in the heart of Fremantle.

To be eligible, a business must satisfy a number of criteria, the most important being that they operate within the creative industries sector. Architecture, IT & software/computer services, design (graphic, fashion or product); and film, TV & video are just a few examples of creative industries.

The program will help small business owners looking to take the next step by subsidising their workspace costs and providing them with an opportunity to work alongside and collaborate with other successful business owners and professionals.

“The City views the continuing emergence of creative industries in Fremantle as a key driver in Fremantle’s ongoing rejuvenation,” said Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt.

“The partnership with fSpace is a great fit for us and we look forward to being able to help kick-start some innovative local businesses that hopefully go on to become industry leaders,” said Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt.

Sabine Albers, owner of fSpace, said she was excited to be partnering with the City to help creative businesses.

“Each month, people come into fSpace wanting to start their own business but struggle with the financial commitment to make a go of it,” Sabine said.

“This program will provide the opportunity for people to work alongside some fantastic entrepreneurs at fSpace and will help get innovative business ideas off the ground or take an existing venture to the next level”

The program is available to new business start-ups as well as existing businesses looking to develop and grow in Fremantle.

A Healthy Choice on Leake St.

By | community | No Comments

Australia Royals

fSpace is excited about the new trendy Melbourne style cafe in our very own little courtyard.

On top of being the newest addition to our building and serving up fine quality coffee and healthy, great tasting food, former MasterChef contestant Wade Drummond is also embarking on a unique new project in 2016 tackling nutritional education in WA schools and empowering children to feed themselves and their families.

Wade’s Cooking For A Generation Project aims to launch between February and April in the new year and will be targeted towards students between 10-12 years old in lower socio-economic schools around WA without access to things such as market gardens or proper food education.

They will lead the project which will be accepting volunteers with anything from basic to advanced cooking experience to help educate school children around Perth.

Volunteers will teach groups of students how to prepare and cook a dish over the course of an eight week period. By the end of that time, volunteers will have managed to teach kids the basics of nutrition and how to cook a decent meal.

“Ideally at the end of the project they will be able to make a simple meal for themselves and their family.”

Wade spoke to fSpace about his concern over how many children live off a diet of fast food and don’t actually have a clue what a fruit or vegetable even look likes.

“It’s important to teach kids how to make healthy food choices,” he said.

“How are they going to choose to eat healthy food they haven’t seen or tried them before?”

“I want to empower kids to feed themselves the right thing.”

The Leake St. Cafeteria owner also mentioned the fantastic local support he was receiving for the project after reaching his $15,000 Kickstarter goal with lots of people still hoping to contribute.

The plan is to add components of the project where if volunteers had even only basic food knowledge, then they could still take that and teach it at a school over the course of an eight week period.

“By the end of that time, volunteers will hopefully have managed to teach these kids the basics of nutrition and how to cook.”

“Ideally at the end of that they can make a simple meal for themselves and their family,” he said.

Wade is currently loving his recent sea-change living and working full-time from Freo. With the amazing produce from right next door’s grocer Kakulas Sisters, this ex-MasterChef contestant assured us he is never short of inspiration.

“The people curious enough to venture down the back of Kukulas or down a little secret laneway on Leake St. to find you are already willing to try something new,” he said.

If you like to know more about this awesome project stop by for a coffee or healthy bite to eat and a chat at Leake St. Cafeteria by walking through Kukula’s Sister on Market St. or following the yellow painted line through the alley way on Leake St.
