BizBuddyHub has evolved from its early roots of pop-up coworking and advocating for a mixed used Hub in Wyndham to a membership organisation with an ethos around building local economy and social cohesion via an online platform and physical events centred around collaboration, shared resources, spaces and energy.
BizBuddyHub aspires to be the supermarket of everything local, bringing together all local stakeholders in a collaborative way and provides tools such as the business listings, events, blog and collaboration tools as well as an e-commerce marketplace ability for its members to utilise to further grow and expand their existing reach for their products, services, events etc.
The model is designed to build a strong vertical in each aspect of the economy e.g. Trades, Makers, Foodies, Services etc., and then support those verticals through a Team of Skilled Associates and Ambassadors who can Tender for and Scope bigger pieces of work and project manage collaborative projects for the local membership.
The model also is intended to have a public facing aspect that encourages locals to search local and buy local first. The collaborative member-2-member back end allows the membership to have access to each other as well as set up events, private groups by topic and private collaborations, to share files and tasks and communicate easily with collaborators within one platform.
The tag line Live Local, Work Local, Shop Local – Collaborate Global reflects the ethos and the vision for the community and for BizBuddyHub as a whole.
