About Us

After having launched Wales’ largest community of entrepreneurs in 2012 – Mandy and Gareth launched Town Square in 2017 to create a new space for people who wanted to be active in creating our future society.

Life in 2018 seems strange, the changes on the horizon seem inevitable, and could potentially turn upside down the world as we know it.

This doesn’t have to be terrifying, new technologies and ways of doing things create new opportunities, and we can all benefit from this unknown new future.

At Town Square, you can learn from those who are committing their lives to these causes, and work on projects that matter to you, no matter how big or small.
