A trip to New York City to buy items for her first interior design company gave Joelle Smith the idea to establish Hub Coworking in Kingston.

She also realized the concept would address issues of unproductivity that she faced while working from home.

The Hub Coworking provides ready-made office space with all the amenities for the modern entrepreneur, freelancer or consultant looking to boost productivity without costly overheads.

What's more, it provides a melting pot of business professionals, which facilitates the flow of fresh ideas from new perspectives.

Smith, who serves a co-founder and managing director operates the hub along with her business partners Yaniece Gentles, Renee Wong and Peta-Gaye Pryce. The young women put together capital to start the business.

So positive is the feedback since opening last year, Smith is working on expanding the hub to a second floor. The medium-term goal is to set up other hubs across the island.

Check out the Hub Coworking in the video edited by Richard Baker.
