“When I came back to Australia to run my shoe business from Brisbane, I had a ton of friends who were in the same boat, like PR firms, supplement houses, photographers and fashion designers, who were constantly making trips to visit other industry professionals in order to do business.

So we basically came up with the idea that we can all be in the same space together and get everyone to come see us, and it developed into what it is now.” Explains Mr Fairweather.

The Weekend Edition
Jock Fairweather, Founder, Little Tokyo Two
"From the mushrooming fleet of food trucks rolling through the streets to the many small businesses being hatched over beers and the start-ups igniting across the city, Brisbane harbours a wealth of creative, entrepreneurial talent. Now a new local venue is set to pool together the trailblazers to create a supportive community where these dreamers can bring their plans to life. Merging collaborative co-working space with provincial Chinese cafe, bar and restaurant, Little Tokyo Two will offer both launching platform and safety net. Founder Jock Fairweather has paid homage to the Japanese restaurant that stood before the new venue by retaining the building’s original features and yellow brick facade, but crafting a sleek space inside. The restaurant is set to open within the next few weeks, while the offices are due for completion by early November. The Weekend Edition dropped in to the Spring Hill incubator this week to probe Jock about his plans."

After trying his hand at steel working and personal training, Fairweather performed a U-turn to study footwear design at the London College of Fashion. His newest incarnation is even more fascinating: Founder and Captain of Little Tokyo Two."

"Working alone doesn’t mean you have to work alone. A lot of start-ups, entrepreneurs and small (or micro) established businesses can’t initially afford to have their own offices in Brisbane and can’t stay motivated when left at home with their comfortable bed, endless supply of snacks in the fridge, and their Netflix. However,that’s where a Brisbane coworking space or office can help! They allow creatives and business people alike to get ahead and focus on growing their idea or business."
