The spacious 4,500 sq. ft. storefront is conveniently located below City Hall’s West Tower, and is designed to fuel your creativity and productivity!
The facility, operated by the Brampton Entrepreneur Centre (BEC), will initially offer co-working space as a pilot to allow clients to get a feel of the new experience at no cost. The pilot is also an opportunity for the BEC team to measure project feasibility and efficiency. Entrepreneurs interested in working from our space must complete an application and be approved to use the space.
New applications are being accepted at this time and will be approved monthly - typically the first week of the month.
Accepted applications will be granted access to the space for hot-desking only. We provide a desk, power and internet access only during the pilot.
Please note that all other BEC programs and services will be offered from 41 George Street for the duration of the pilot program.
