Creative Universe recently welcomed the Federal Government’s vision for a more innovative economy, particularly its support for incubators and increased collaboration between businesses, universities and the research sector.
As part of its National Innovation and Science Agenda the Government is setting aside $8 million for an Entrepreneurs’ Program, aimed at helping more start-ups realise their economic potential.
Creative Universe and Creative Innovation Global Founder, leading soprano and serial entrepreneur Tania de Jong AM said the collaboration fostered at high performing incubators and co-working spaces was a crucial ingredient to innovation.
“The elements of mentoring, shared resources and networking that exist in co-working spaces rapidly accelerate the opportunities available to early stage entrepreneurs,” he said.
Creative Universe join hands with Dimension Data
The launch of the Federal Government’s Innovation Statement comes as Creative Universe announces a partnership with global ICT solutions and services provider, Dimension Data which will see the launch of Dimension⁵, a new Melbourne co-working space, in early 2016.
Dimension⁵ aims to promote ‘positive human collisions’ and spark innovation and entrepreneurship across technology, start-ups, business and social enterprises, in line with Creative Universe’s goal to develop creative leaders and build a culture of innovation.
The South Melbourne hub will be open to entrepreneurs, innovators, creatives, social enterprises, small businesses, not-for-profits, disruptive teams from large organisations and others who want to connect with a passionate community of game-changers.
Start-up membership at Dimension⁵ will be available from $425 per month and includes invitations to regular community events, such as brainstorm breakfasts, pitch nights, guest speakers and yoga/meditation classes. Additional membership options also include mentoring opportunities with corporate partners.
