Two decades of impact

Once a historic site from the last industrial revolution, our space is now dedicated to developing revolutionary science and technology startups that will improve the world. 

Supported by our founding shareholders – ANU, UNSW, USYD and UTS – our incubator and community brings together the fields of business, engineering and science to solve complex challenges.

Since our inception, we’ve seen an unprecedented $1.3bn in exits from six deep tech ventures in the last two decades. We’ve helped our residents raise billions in funding and file hundreds of patents globally.

Our Areas of Focus

From the future of human health to space technology, we’re focused on supporting ventures working on some of the world’s most pressing problems and promising opportunities.
