Incubator / meeting place / collaborative space for creativ e industry entrepreneurs
Good Practice Information
The Brewhouse is an incubator / meeting place / collaborative space for creativ e industry entrepreneurs. It was set up in 2004 and is now an established meeting place. It has created a marked increase in innovation and many entrepreneurs in the building have created new business opportunities with each other. The most important lesson learnt is to let a process take the time it needs. There is also a need for greater interaction and shared communication. The economic crisis has made it difficult for some companies to stay on as tenants.
Evidence of success
The Brewhouse has generated close to 1,400 ideas in five years, 2,000 innovators, and 90 companies which is equivalent to approximately 140 new jobs within the creative industries mentioned above. Brewhouse has also been written up in international press about how it develops talent and the entrepreneurial spirit.
