Business Community

Co-working Spaces

The Concept

There’s this really cool new business model catching on that involves cooperative, sustainable coworking spaces, and often has a start-up element. We knew Sherwood Park was not only ready but eager to host such a space. So we went for it. Our IBC is an iteration of this model with a twist: all of our members connect with creativity and each other. And this building sort of becomes a department store for your business. If you want to see if you’d be a good fit for our community, give us a call!

____________

Marketing

Seems like it could be a waste of money spending on promo when you don’t know where you’re going as a company in the market. So we brought in a whiz-bang marketer and branding consultant.

____________

Coworkers

Some people are happy to work from home or a coffee shop forever. The artists and entrepreneurs in this space are no longer satisfied with that space in their lives and have moved into shared spaces here, where they get the thrill of collaboration, community, and clientele!

____________

Mastering & AV & DJ Companies

A beautiful room inspires beautiful music, which in turn inspires beautiful sound. We are excited to share our community with audio visual specialists, djs, and folks who can master any sound you have to share.

____________

Coffee

Come on, you know it. Coffee motivates, invigorates, and galvanizes creativity. Imagine the very best beans roasted locally. Imagine a steaming superfresh cup enjoyed in a light-filled gallery space with groovy tunes bursting out of the light bulbs. Are you feeling the adrenalin of creativity? We wanna provide an opportunity to relax or wind up, alone or with clients…
