I want to establish a Business Incubator in the Hutt City for start-up businesses looking for a place to call home. A big hurdle for new businesses is the financial burden of finding a suitable lease & committing for 3+ years. Combine this with the expensive costs to fit the place out, and it’s no wonder why this puts a lot of business minded people off.

I want to evaluate what level of council involvement is possible within the current budget. Anything from facilitating a shared office space where user pays, through to fully funded environment.
