If you are thinking about getting an online business started and are worried about risks and costs – well… you should be!

But seriously, there are many positive aspects to working in the 21st century hi-tech workforce – and Alice Springs will be seeing some innovative initiatives emerging soon to help support this rapidly growing industry.

A Co-Working space for Alice Springs?

There has long been talk about the value that a co-working space would bring to the local creative and digital services industry in Alice Springs – but thus far nothing has really emerged. Is that set to change?

To whet your appetites, check out this link here to “On the Money“, a radio show that runs on local community radio 102.1 8CCC (via 2Ser).

The report talks about the advantages of having a co-working space just for start-ups, full of techies and entreprenuers. Not only would it be a great space to hire, to meet and learn, it would build/bring a new skillset to the Territory – a skillset that will be in great demand for the next generation of industry.

What do you think?

We’ll leave you with some images of a funky colocation training workspace that has recently opened in Melbourne. It’s a little different from colocation start-up/entreprenuers space – but it is suitably bright and welcoming.
