GetOn Business Incubation Hub

KennethIn June 2016 we started the development of the GetOn third floor into the GetOn Business Incubation Hub and it has started taking shape, with it being almost 80% complete. Thanks to Builders Fan and Take my Hand for making it possible. Looking forward to getting this initiative running.

Once the building is furnished and communication systems installed, which we are still looking for donors to supply, we will start the advertising and screening process with potential tenants and beneficieries.  

GetOn Business Incubation Hub, will benefit 12 businesses, ensuring the business become sustainable and can progress from our centre in a few years and become big players in the industry of operation, turning small businesses (EME) into larger companies (QSE).
