Press Release from IncuHub
IncuHub, Portsmouth’s first co-working space and Entrepreneurship Center, will open its doors mid-June. This community-driven partnership will bring together business owners looking to connect alongside like-minded entrepreneurs. Located just blocks from downtown Portsmouth (and the Bier Garden), IncuHub offers a co-working environment and a broad range of services to help make small businesses successful.
The federal government sets aside a fixed percentage of contracts to businesses in historically underutilized business zones (HUBZones). When IncuHub opens to the public, it will become the only centrally located Hampton Roads co-working space within a federally-designated HUBZone. IncuHub will also provide business incubator and entrepreneurial support services, giving founders a leg up—especially those competing for government contracts.
“It is a place where you come to work, build relationships, create partnerships, and get support,” said Marko Frigelj, IncuHub’s founder. “But it’s so much more than that. If needed, we’re going to help you grow your business by providing coaching, an accountability structure, and making sure you’re a part of our community. It’s not just a co-working space, it’s a supportive community!”
Included in their membership, businesses will have access to partnerships with local municipalities and non-profits, all while gaining access to services that help them grow.
IncuHub is helping to build a stronger startup and small business community south of the James and west of the Elizabeth River, including Portsmouth, Suffolk, Chesapeake, and Isle of Wight County. Unlike other co-working spaces in the region, IncuHub provides a more comprehensive membership package, designed to foster innovation through community partnership.
Leveraging partnerships with local businesses, universities, and municipalities, IncuHub members can seek training, joint ventures, and funding to make their businesses more successful. The shared space and innovation center will also provide members with access to an attorney, an accountant, an entrepreneur-in-residence, executive coaching, and physical mailboxes.
“This is not a real estate venture,” says Marko. “It is a home for like-minded individuals who want to create value for customers and pursue their passions.” Marko himself is a local business owner and understands the advantages that a solid network can bring to companies. Marko has over a decade of consulting and project management experience and is the owner of PMA Solutions Inc., a Management Consulting company serving the Federal Government and corporations like Anthem Inc.
“It is community. It is support. It is entrepreneurship. It is out-of-the-box thinking.”
