When co-working space provider Hub Australia launches its second Sydney site, early next year, its national footprint will have nearly doubled. Founder and CEO Brad Krauskopf spoke to Dynamic Business about his vision for Hub Hyde Park, a 4200 square metre space at 223 Liverpool Street. He also discussed his future plans for Hub Australia and shared his predictions on the future of the co-working movement.
DB: How would you quantify the success of Hub Australia to date?
Krauskopf: We’ve been pioneering co-working in Australia since 2010, when we open our first site at Donkey Wheel House in Melbourne. From that time, the business has grown to four locations across Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, including Hub Hyde Park at 223 Liverpool Street, which will be our second Sydney site after Hub William Street. The new site will bring our Sydney footprint to over 5000 square metres and over 10000 square metres nationally.
In terms of members, we’ve seen strong growth yearly and currently have over 1,100 Hub Australia members nationally – an innovative and inspiring community we are really proud of! Once Hub Hyde Park opens we expect to support 2,000 members. Beyond the space and customer service, the main reason for our growth has been our focus on helping members grow their business and attract and retain staff. Read more
