[WOLFVILLE, NS] — Frances Schagen, Mauricio Duarte and Liz Kosters met through their interest in the concept of a future business hub for the Annapolis Valley.
The trio started a public discussion on June 22 at the Wolfville Farmers’ Market and it attracted more than 25 individuals. Some have home offices, others are lone entrepreneurs or work at Acadia University.
Schagen told the group that nothing is decided yet. She has visited hubs in Europe and noted that a co-working space is proving popular.
Duarte noted that the essence is a media centre, but that much can develop in terms of networking, workshop venues and places to meet clients.
Participants in the Wolfville session discussed their needs and interests.
Kosters said the vision is to have a single hub community, with potentially more than a single venue.
The next meeting will take place July 19 at the Kentville Recreation Centre.
She said anyone interested in attending should check the Hub Annapolis Valley web site (www.thehubannapolisvalley.ca) or the Facebook page.
