Almost exactly 3 years ago there was a fancy breakfast in Wagga. Apparently, I was to busy stuffing my face to say hello to people and when a fresh-faced, shiny new entrepreneur Di Somerville introduced herself to me, I ignored her. (dying!)
A few weeks later, Di was talking to someone about how she needed to get her "startup" off the farm and into town, and Peita suggested she pop into Working Spaces HQ (well it didn't exist yet) so Di did. Thanks, Peita!
Instantly we hit it off, and as they say, the rest is history.
In three short years, Working Spaces HQ has grown and evolved - even moving premises and now has a waitlist! Di has gone on to do some pretty epic things - Regional Pitchfest, 8point8 and I have had the pleasure of sitting on the sideline, cheering Di along and enjoying her wild ride.
With a love for regional Australia, entrepreneurship, innovation, startups and goats it just made sense that we join forces, alone we can do great things, but together, well the sky really is the limit. But Working Spaces HQ is full and there is no room to swing a umm goat ... so we decided to get another building #ta-daaaaa
