IF is all about created a workspace that enables these exciting entrepreneurs to reach their potential.

The Challenge

Before Smarter Surfaces, the Innovation Factory thought that their space was quite clinical looking. Of equal importance, they needed a space for the co-working entrepreneurs to get their ideas on the wall. There was only one problem. They didn’t want to put up whiteboards. They wanted a modern alternative.

Here is a wall in the co-working space, before the walls became Smarter Surfaces :

At 12m long, converting this great space into a writable wall truly transforms the working space and the atmosphere into something that all entrepreneurs would love to work on.

How is the Writable Wall Used ?

Now everyone can write on the wall, rather than sitting down and working on laptops. The new writable wall brings the group together. Everyone uses the wall.

Apart from the entrepreneur tenants of the Innovation Factory, there are others who also benefit from this great space.

Local schools use the Innovatory Factory. Children learn about innovation and running their own business.  The teacher and children work on the 12m long writable wall.

The objective is for the young students to consider entrepreneurship when they leave school, rather than automatically going into employment.

This room is also rented out for events every other morning.
