Business Resource Spotlight: The Link

Business Resource Spotlight: The Link


The resources a business needs to succeed are not always readily available, especially for innovative start-ups. From basics necessities like office space and copiers to more intangible needs that help entrepreneurs connect and collaborate to build better businesses. The Link in Arcata provides these resources and more — it’s part idea laboratory and part innovation driver.

As a unique business incubator, The Link enables synergies that help members transform ideas into successful and profitable ventures by exchanging knowledge and developing collaborative initiatives and business ventures. From private businesses to nonprofits to other organizations, Humboldt County entrepreneurs benefit from the shared resources and the learning community established at The Link.

A guiding principle of The Link is to combine individual and team creativity and entrepreneurship — to use the power of collaboration and experimentation to innovate new, value-adding solutions.

To accommodate the diverse types of businesses and entrepreneurs that reside in Humboldt County, there are several different levels of membership, each with their own perks and benefits that can include access to open workspace, use of the conference rooms and dedicated office space.

The Link also hosts educational workshops and networking events — some are exclusive to members, while others are open to the public, including the Marketing Brown Bag series that Strategic eMarketing leads monthly.

The Link is a project of Greenway Partners and is located in the Creamery District at 1835 Eighth St. in Arcata, CA. To learn more, call 707-822-0597 or go to The Link contact page.
