Published on: Thursday, 20 September 2018
Cork Institute of Technology’s Rubicon Centre, on CIT’s Main Campus, has completed the refurbishment of a section of their highly successful incubator. This involved the creation of a Grade A office building, providing a smart co-working area incorporating an interactive idea generation cube. CIT is the first third level institution in the country to provide this type of space. It will provide entrepreneurs with an interactive space to design and develop their businesses.
Operations Manager at the Rubicon Centre, George Bulman, explained “we have developed our Rubicon Cube to complement our existing suite of offerings. This new, smart, co-working space allows visitors and companies to avail of a comfortable and professional location to base themselves for short periods of time.”
The area has 12 individual desks that can be booked on an hourly, daily, weekly, or bi-weekly basis. The space comes with high speed broadband, fixed line, and WiFi connectivity, access to meeting rooms, free parking, and mentoring from Rubicon staff. Bulman added, “visitors can avail of three unique offerings: Rubicon Drop in Member on a daily rate, Rubicon Business Member booking 30 hours per month and Rubicon Community Member selecting a 5 day or 10 day pass.”
The Rubicon Centre’s Idea Generation Cube also has the facility for users to conduct skype/conference calls and presentations simultaneously. Paul Healy, Manager of the Rubicon Centre said, “We are very excited about this development in the Rubicon and believe it will be of great benefit to our clients and others in the region.” Specifically designed for budding entrepreneurs who are working from a home location this space allows them to have access to the Rubicon Centre’s entrepreneurial community at a low cost. It will also be of interest to organisations who do business with multinational companies in the region who need a base for short periods and for people who may be in Cork occasionally
