Working spaces for manufacturers
Part of supporting entrepreneurship also includes supporting local makers, manufacturers and craftsmen and women, whether manufacturing bicycles, or crafting furniture, shoes, beers etc. Working spaces where things are produced are slowly coming back to the city. They not only provide valuable jobs, they also create a useful service to residents and reinforce the creative identity of a city or neighbourhood. Providing incentives for such businesses could include the rental at discounted rates in city owned commercial spaces.
