    Do you need a hot desk, a Zoom room or a cool conference space to impress clients? The newly opened Vic Biz Hub, a short drive from downtown Victoria on Tennyson Avenue, has you covered. 

    The Hub rents offices, hot desks (shared workstations), and offers a menu of administrative, mail and courier services. Additional spaces include a boardroom, screening room, Zoom room, even a patio and kitchen, all of which have access to high-speed Wi-Fi. The Hub offers membership options, too, which include access to networking events, professional-development workshops and personal-business coaching sessions.

    Why rent office space? For those who work remotely, a few days away from home can improve that elusive work/life balance. And business owners who don’t have adequate facilities to host meetings can rent a Hub boardroom. 

    Then there are those without the budget for a full-time assistant who can use the Hub’s administrative services. And entrepreneurs who seek guidance can benefit from professional-development workshops and personal-business coaching.

    The Hub has a diverse menu of services, and the founders hope it will help strengthen Victoria-based businesses and in turn the economy as a whole. The goal is for economic energy to stay in the community. Their philosophy is that when money is spent at a local enterprise, close to 70 per cent of that money continues to circulate in the community, building a more resilient and robust local economy.
