Mayor visits new business in Portrush

A new remote working and hot desk hub in Portrush offering modern office space and ultrafast broadband is now officially open.

Located on Eglinton Lane, The WorkSpace provides a flexible solution for local business people, freelancers, start-ups, students and visiting tourists in response to changing working habits.

The brainchild of local man Ben Brennan, the idea was conceived through his personal experience of navigating hybrid working between his home in Portrush and his Belfast office.

The entrepreneur benefited from the expert support of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Alchemy mentoring programme.

Mayor, Councillor Richard Holmes, said: “It’s very encouraging to see such an innovative business venture in our Borough, and we are fortunate to have such forward-thinking local entrepreneurs, like Ben, whose ideas benefit both residents and visitors as well as our local economy.

“Council plays a key role in supporting business growth in Causeway Coast and Glens and I’m very pleased to see its positive impact and hear directly from Ben about how our business support services have helped him.”

Ben said: “I started the business and signed up to the Council’s Alchemy programme. This gave me the support I needed to develop a business growth plan which has given me a strategic pathway to grow The WorkSpace.”
