Here’s what members say:

“The REconomy Centre gave us a friendly and helpful space, and time to develop our business identity, gain confidence and develop personally at an affordable cost. Sharing the space meant that we could interact with other entrepreneurs, develop ideas and share knowledge in a relaxed and friendly environment.”
– David Markson
Co-director Food in Community CIC

“The space inspired me to create the Marketing surgery, where I offered free 1:1 sessions with local entrepreneurs or start-ups. I also developed some workshops off the back of these sessions which were offered on a donation basis. I donated 10% of the income from these back to the REconomy Centre. I also attracted private clients via the free or paid for sessions I ran and recommendations from the work I did there. It’s a valuable and flexible space that really helped me get my business going with minimal expense and low risk.”

“The REconomy Centre has also given us a credible, impressive base from which to meet with our members, funders, students, educators, peers, councilors, volunteers, interns and business associates, where they can experience first-hand how – literally – energy sits next to food, transport and money in a local system.”
– Jane Brady
Totnes Renewable Energy Society

“The REconomy Centre has proven to become a big part of my life. As a business consultant I could work from home in Harberton, but have chosen to commute into Totnes to become part of a group of people and businesses. I have done this as I believe by acting together we can help each other, improve the local economy and generally make Totnes a nicer place in which to live and work.”
– Angus Ogilvy-Stuart
The Business Guru
