The Economic Development Team at the Township of Huron-Kinloss have launched a new project called The Hub, which is a new space for entrepreneurs to come and work together to expand their businesses or get one started. Huron-Kinloss received $128,750 in funding from the Rural Economic Development Program (RED) and $170,000 from the Nuclear Waste Management Organization to launch The Hub.

Located at 46 Queen Street in Ripley, The Hub will be offering programs like Start a Business, Business Expansion and Youth Entrepreneurship, as well as online webinars. It will be managed by Lauren Eby, Huron-Kinloss Business Development Coordinator.

COVID-19 physical distancing measures and mask wearing policies are in place.

“The Hub is an excellent space that entrepreneurs can utilize for business supports throughout their entrepreneurial ventures,” says Mitch Twolan, Mayor of Huron-Kinloss.

“We are pleased to introduce The Hub as a regional business supports centre for entrepreneurs to access guidance in starting or expanding their business,” says Mary Rose Walden, Chief Administrative Officer of Huron-Kinloss.
