The way we work is changing. Self-employment, remote working and small business ownership are on the rise, but working alone can be a challenge. We believe that anything can be achieved by the power of community.
This philosophy is at the heart of our workspace and it’s one that has grown from personal experience. Our founder, Heather Frankham, charted a career from PE teacher to building the UK’s leading apprenticeship training provider, Lifetime Training right here in Bristol.
When Heather started out, she didn’t have any business connections that could support, guide or point her in the right direction. Heather recognised how useful it could be to be part of a business community. Our goal with Origin Workspace is to provide that community and to help individuals and businesses grow smarter and quicker.
Having handpicked a management team with proven business experience to launch Origin Workspace, it’s our aim to bridge that gap and give people with great ideas all the tools they need to succeed.
The dictionary definition of Origin is, “the point or place where something begins, arises, or is derived” and that’s why we chose it as our name. Origin Workspace is a place that supports those at the start of their business journey and enables them to develop it into something great. A place that champions businesses and startups with a purpose to drive social change and benefit the community. And a place where more established professionals and businesses can put down some foundations, grow their connections and reach their goals.
