10C Community Partner Packages

Support community action, engagement and change.

10C Shared Space is fueling the social change sector in Guelph. The redevelopment on the former Acker’s Furniture Building at 42 Carden Street is nearing completion and the building is a thriving social innovation hub and a major community asset for Downtown Guelph.

10C Shared Space is the hub for community changemakers in Guelph. We are a platform for those who work across sectors and engage in collaborative work to improve our community. Together with over 100 social finance investors, we have created a vibrant downtown coworking and event meeting space which offers students, professionals, and researchers that work within Guelph a place to gather, exchange ideas and work towards change. Our immeasurable benefits extend to the deepening of community relationships, the opening of new opportunities, and the discovery of new ways to solve problems. People work, meet, eat, create and brainstorm together at 10C. Promote community collaboration and change by becoming a 10C Shared Space Community Partner.

Two packages are designed specifically for the business community and will help 10C provide invaluable support to our not-for-profit, social benefit and entrepreneurial members. Build a strong community AND showcase your company in this iconic community space. You can strengthen programming and create deeper connections across Guelph and Ontario. Be part of the change to come, as we create programming for the shared community kitchen, launch urban agriculture projects and support social entrepreneurship.
