ACU Co-Lab 5 Year Report

Co-Lab business incubator

Everyone should have a chance to achieve their goals. That’s why we created Co-Lab, a free co-working space and business incubator for everyone and anyone who is working on an innovative start-up or looking to grow their existing business.

Yesterday’s dream, today’s reality

Collaborate - talking at table

Co-Lab is the place to turn your big dream into a reality. Our flexible, inclusive co-working spaces are open to students and the general business community. We’ll support your start-up or small-to-medium enterprise with the technology, educational events, resource sharing and collaboration it needs to get moving.

About us

For us, it’s about you. And your success. We’ve partnered with the NSW Department of Industry to help you connect with the right people, organisations and resources required to make your dreams a reality.

Ideas are great – but you need the resources to try them, test them and learn from others’ successes and failures. We’ve curated free databases, research and case studies to help inform your entrepreneurial journey.
