It has been two weeks since the ‘official’ launch of the Atomic Sky Tech Hub and I have left you all hanging I know. Everyone has asked about who has come on board and what is happening, so I will give you the low down.
The open day was a great success, with over 50 people coming through the Tech Hub to view what is on offer and network amongst like-minded entrepreneurs. There was a variety of business owners or budding business owners ranging from mining start up The Mining Hub to children’s author Jennifer Bates who has created a fantastic series of books called Super Baby and Ted.
Our first occupant was Tim Frey from Helix Performance Science, who is a young enthusiastic entrepreneur with a fantastic vision to improve athletic and sports performance of all athletes in Australia. His company offers performance testing to athletes or up and coming athletes who want proven methods to increase their strength conditioning or particular areas that are related to their chosen sport. They design structured training programs and profile each athlete highlighting strengths and weaknesses. Tim and his co-founder Mark Scanlan are set to revolutionise the sports industry and are very knowledgeable in their field. Hit them up for a chat sometime! http://www.performancessc.com/
The Atomic Sky team have been working closely with Tim to guide him on best ways to get his business in front of the right market and consumers as well as high level strategic advice to ensure he has solid growth. When asked how he feels about moving into the Atomic Sky Tech Hub Tim said ‘Atomic sky tech hub has been an excellent step for Helix, with their help my business has grown exponentially in a short amount of time’.
Next to follow was Ashlee Trout from The Corporate Climber, another young ambitious female entrepreneur who captivated us at the opening day with her concept about Gen Y’s in the workplace and business idea of helping transition both corporations and the Gen Y’s into a smooth working relationship. We all know that Gen Y’s are the generation we love to hate (I even wrote a blog post about it this one time…. http://imari.com.au/index.php/blog/info/a_id/1002 ) but Ashlee has a fantastic system that works for both the Gen Y’s and their employers and ensures a much more productive younger workforce, which is a win/win for everyone.

We also have tech start up Hey Mate® on board as one of Atomic Sky’s investments and founder John Thiele is a regular face at the Tech Hub. John’s app is in the final stages of completion and is currently being piloted by a global dredging company based in Darwin. He has some big names interested and we are excited about the endless opportunities to build on the current app offering and make it a must have for all corporations and their staff.
We had our first Friday drinks event where Barry kindly showcased wines from the burgundy region and put on a wine tasting accompanied by cheese. We were all taken aback by Barry’s knowledge of the wine and learnt more about his passion for the finer things in life. Barry truly is a connoisseur. Barry has been absent from the Tech Hub this week and his dry humour and quick wit has been missed. Come back Barry!
This Friday we will be holding another members only drinks event for our new additions to socialise and get to know each other.
If you are looking for co-working space, or are currently working from home and want to be around motivating and inspiring people give me a call – 0424 174 596, I am friendly and I don’t bite (unless provoked). We have got a cool group of people here and you know you want to be part of something that is changing the start up game in Perth.
