The Creative Space
12 Dunlop St East
The Creative Space is Downtown Barrie’s entrepreneurship centre. A hub for freelancers, startups and other digital nomads since 2009. It’s a community space where business, art and life collide.
TCS is not just one business, it’s a centre for many businesses to find the space, resources and mentorship to grow their company. They also launched the smOffice program in 2015, accelerating new startups in 6 months via a cool, creative and effective program of community support. TCS also launched SimCoLab (Barrie’s first hackerspace), Boardsters (a downtown board game club), Ignite Barrie, Startup Barrie, and TrepMixers. They also sponsor Barrie Open Coffee Club, as well as a number of other local grassroots programs. And it’s all privately-supported and volunteer-operated!
