Economic development agency buys co-working space

SCREDO

The Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Organization (SCREDO) is taking over the FUSE Community Work Hub in Gibsons.
A press release announcing the deal said, “The modern economy is highlighted by nimble entrepreneurs and professionals on the move. Gone are the days of large stuffy office buildings. The Sunshine Coast is home to a thriving population of professionals who seek a different work-life balance. A co-working space is one way to have an affordable full or part-time office presence.”

Chair Dave Chisholm said SCREDO “is excited to build upon the solid foundation that [Former FUSE owners] Mark and Sheila Cameron have established for co-working in Gibsons Landing. Our goal is to expand operations and serve a growing tech and creative sector.”

Chisholm told Coast Reporter the purchase involved the “soft assets” of FUSE, such as the office furniture, branding and social media platforms and the cost was around $9,000.

FUSE will continue operating at its existing location at 15-292 Gower Point Road, and will continue offering services like work spaces, meeting rooms, space for evening meetings and events and a professional space to host seminars.

SCREDO also recently put out a call for a part-time business development coordinator to help promote FUSE, recruit new members and coordinate events on an eight-hour-a-week, seven-month contract. 

An open house is being held at FUSE June 20 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
