The WEB Business Hub

The WEB Business Hub, opened in October 2018 by the Minister for Regional Development, is a purpose-built facility in the heart of Port Hedland that provides flexible co-working accommodation and tailor-made innovation programs to encourage entrepreneurship and support new and existing small businesses.  

Together with The Edge in Newman and the Karratha Enterprise Hub, The WEB is one of three business innovation centres established in the Pilbara by the State Government through the Pilbara Development Commission, designed to work together to accelerate small business growth and development in the region. 

The WEB’s service-based programs focus on management, financial, training and technology support to enable businesses to develop and enhance their long-term sustainability.  

The new facility comprises seven private offices, of which all are leased to local businesses; a co-working area with 11 hot desks; a dedicated workspace with a further 12 desks; three meeting rooms; and multifunctional indoor and outdoor event spaces. 

A total of 23 Pilbara businesses were contracted as part of the construction of the WEB, with 60 per cent of the furnishings for the facility fit-out purchased from local businesses. 

The WEB’s mission is to be at the forefront of business development and innovation for the Pilbara region.
