‘Rivertech’ opened on the 1 June 2016 and is a shared work space for entrepreneurs, freelancers and homeworkers from Rickmansworth and the surrounding area named. The 'hub' will utilise vacant and underused space from the Council's offices and Basing House in Rickmansworth and will be working with Wimbletech, a Community Interest Company, to help run and manage the Hub.
To help make this a centre of entrepreneurship, users are able to join Rivertech through flexible packages; these range from renting a ‘hot desk’ from £65 per month and ‘fixed desk’ from £95 per month (excluding VAT). Larger space for small companies is also available at a higher rate, dependent on size and availability of floor space.
With easy access to central London, the site is situated within a fantastic listed building, providing co-working space for entrepreneurs, small teams and startups. The project is all about putting people before profit, aiming to provide the best possible value for the lowest price. By becoming a member, you will automatically gain access to the vast network of existing Wimbletech members, meaning that everyone from investors, designers and accountants are only a message away.
The objective of project is to simply and cost-effectively transform the under-utilised space, and create a sustainable, affordable, flexible, local, community space for start-ups and co-workers in the Three Rivers District by:
- Creating local, affordable working space for diverse set of entrepreneurs
- Improving local employment opportunities and spending (in the local area)
- Providing access to innovation, skills and services (for existing local organisations)
- Hosting free community events (members and non-members) to share skills and knowledge
- Increasing footfall and awareness to the Three Rivers Museum
- Increasing footfall into Rickmansworth Town Centre
- Increasing awareness and desirability of the Three Rivers District as a place to live / work
- Generating sustainable, additional revenue for the Three Rivers District Council
- Providing an alternative, local work space for ‘commuters’ (live / work locally!)
