Are you a maker? A techie? A coder? A tinkerer? Do you need a place to develop your skills, meet with people with similar or complementary skills? Highland Tech Hub is now open for business, and welcomes you!

From idea to social enterprise

Many of us working in the wider creative, digital and tech space in Highland have found it difficult to

  • Find collaborators
  • Scale opportunities and business
  • Communicate our offering with the wider community

At the instigation of Robert Fraser, Tech Meetup spun off a group to look at working together on different community-focused projects. We looked at pitching for one of the CivTech®2.0 challenges, but came up immediately against a difficulty: where would we base the projects we might want to do?

We welcome contact from anyone – whether you represent a community group, a business, or just yourself – who is interested a create/make space for tech, digital and engineering.

Contact us today on 01463 572042 or use the button below to register interest or book a space.

Project 0.0: HTH

Idea

Áine Uí Ghiollagáin pitched, as the first project, the development of a hub which would not just host projects, but answer some of the issues the wider tech community has confronted in recent years.

A community survey and meetings with stakeholders and community groups established that there is sufficient interest in a multi-purpose physical space to merit pursuing the project.

We formed Highland Tech Hub with support from Just Enterprise and the Impact Hub in Inverness to decide on the best structure for the initiative. Following a very helpful session with Karen and Polly, we set up as a social enterprise, in order to underpin our community focus and allow for the development of HTH on a sustainable business footing.

First phase

Highland Tech Hub is now open for business, hosted by The Apprentice Store in this first phase in Castle House, Fairways Business Park. Initially it will be possible to become a member for £5 per month, with the option of then renting a hotdesk, a set desk, or book meeting rooms in the building.

Initially, rates for a fixed desk are £200 per month; hotdesk charges are based on a monthly commitment of between £80-£190 a month, subject to commitment. All come with access to Internet and include tea and coffee.

Next phase

Over the next 6 months, Highland Tech Hub will promote the space and monitor take up of the facilities. Once we reach a sustainable level, we will look at expanding our offering, including into larger premises.
