Audio (Andre Veronie): So the Small Business Hive, for me it's a co-working space that has incorporated some of the features that I really look for in an office environment. It's for small businesses that have outgrown their living space or their living rooms and their kitchen benches.

But the sense of people working in each other's space gives the opportunity for people to commune and grow ideas.

Audio (Pamela Dorward): (audio transcript): We have a lot of different business owners that come in and entrepreneurs, start-ups, and it gives them a good opportunity to network with other businesses…and with other members. It might be at some of our events that we hold. As well as we will sometimes give them the opportunity to introduce them to other areas that they could be going to, to network within the community.

Audio: I think it's a pretty unique space actually in Geelong that fills a need for small businesses. It's a good place where you can get work done, but it's also a place where you can meet and network with other people. There aren't that many places like this.
