SifriHub- A shared workspace in Eastern Lachish in the Negev
SifriHub is a shared work space for entrepreneurs, freelancers and business owners. It is located in the rural village of Eliav in the Lachish region, near Kiryat Gat. The workspace of SifriHub is situated within Eliav’s library.
The Lachish region is a developing area in the south of the country, where entrepreneurs and small business owners in a variety of fields have to travel long distances to one of the big cities (Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Be’er Sheva) to work in a office. SifriHub was established to meet this need and to develop a meeting place for the self-employed, in which has an intimate and quiet work space, along with familiarity and networking with other business owners.
SifriHub is guided by Eretz-Ir, and receives a legal platform for managing the hub, advertising and marketing assistance, networking with other entrepreneurs, and more. Special thank you to the Ness Foundation (Metrowest, New Jersey), the leadership of Eastern Lachish, Entrepreneurship for the Settlement Division and others.
