NEWS: Capital start-ups step up to innovative new creative hub

From slam poetry to art, theatre and deep discussions, we’re not short of opportunities to broaden our horizons in the capital.


But a new hub is connecting business and creativity with the launch of workspaces and a new cultural programme.

GlassQube, Al Reem Island, provides shared workspaces and dedicated facilities for the capital’s budding freelancers, entrepreneurs and businesses, with a concept centered around co-working and creating a dynamic working community.

And now, the location will be innovating beyond the office to establish a community programme of public speaking, networking and cultural events for creative thinkers of the capital alongside its schedule of business events.

The inaugural event is set to take place on 22nd August.

“There’s no question that the global view on office space is shifting dramatically,” commented co-founder and CEO Bernard Lee of the new venture.

“People these days want to be able to network and collaborate with their colleagues, and you don’t get that if you’re sitting isolated in an office,” he added.

With collaborations from some of the capital’s foremost cultural movers and shakers, including #endsmalltalk, Art House Speaks and production house Rubix Cube, it’s a chance for like-minded individuals to network and discover.

“It’s our way of opening up our space to interact with the community at large for creatives to congregate and connect,” Bernard said.

“It adds a colourful diversity to our community that just makes it a more interesting place to be.”
