EnergyLab was founded to support new business and technological initiatives that move Australia and the world toward 100% clean energy solutions. Clean-tech start-ups have access to the co-working space and various resources they need to thrive in the start-up ecosystem and can apply for the early stage or fast track acceleration programs and funding.
EnergyLab is made possible by the generous support of our Principal Sponsor, Origin Energy. We are part of the New Energy Nexus, a global alliance of clean energy accelerators, and supported by Climate-KIC Australia, based on the EU’s leading cleantech innovation platform. UTS host us in their Chippendale campus in Sydney, a short walk from central station. The establishment of EnergyLab was assisted by a grant from Jobs for NSW.
INCUBATE is an award-winning startup accelerator program founded by the University of Sydney Union. Since 2012 we’ve graduated over 70 student-founded technology startups from our 14-week program, helping ventures from prototype to first customer and seed investment. To date our companies have raised over $15 million in seed and currently have a combined valuation of over $40 million. INCUBATE fosters a proactive community of entrepreneurs on campus by providing funding, co-working space and mentoring from Australia’s most recognised entrepreneurs to accelerate the growth of high-potential startups. The accelerator is open to entrepreneur community at the University of Sydney and partner universities.
Macquarie University Incubator
The Macquarie University Incubator is a brand-new space for students, researchers, staff, small-medium sized enterprises (SMEs), entrepreneurs and start-ups who are working on research or an idea that can be commercialised. With 18 start-ups already calling the Incubator home, and a busy calendar of events, the Incubator is a vibrant and accessible place for the entrepreneurial community.
UTS: Hatchery is more than just an educational program, we are creating the entrepreneurs of the future.
Through bootcamps and masterclasses the ten-week Hatchery program provides students with the foundations of entrepreneurial thinking. In addition to the educational program, Hatchery+ is a three-month accelerator for students and recent graduates who have an early stage venture they want to get off the ground.
Both programs are underpinned by a belief in trusting the messiness of the entrepreneurial journey. We know that every entrepreneurial venture will have its own needs and that mistakes are just as important as breakthroughs. Above all, we are passionate about equipping students with the skills and know-how to create their own futures.
