Rural Enterprise Hub

The Rural Enterprise Hub will be a key part of the eco-system that will be developed in the name of Canolfan Tir Glas. It will be established in order to support the region’s wider vision to develop a strong and resilient economy that will enable businesses to establish, grow and thrive in the long run.

The Hub will be in a position to provide local businesses with advice and practical support so that they develop into dynamic and enterprising entities benefiting from training that would be tailored to their specific needs.

Although some emphasis will be on supporting businesses to become more sustainable, the Hub will be able to assist any local business keen to grow and develop over a period of time. 

The main focus will be on creating brand new businesses, supporting existing businesses, encouraging and supporting those working within the agricultural industry to diversify and to try and encourage the area’s businesses to adopt sustainable and more resilient  methods of thinking and operating. Innovation and creativity will be consistent themes across all services offered.

The Hub will also be in a position to give graduates advice on establishing their own businesses and also identify new markets and produce that would enrich the food, tourism, agriculture and timber industries in particular. Incubation spaces will be provided within the Hub for those wishing to establish new businesses.

These will be located close to seminar rooms and larger lecture rooms where workshops and training courses will be held regularly. Two small offices will also be reserved for established businesses within to relocate to the Hub.
