Pop-up incubator for students, staff and researchers

10 February 2017 - 31 July 2017

Building on our vision to serve the world through innovation, Macquarie has opened its first pop-up incubator on campus.

The pop-up incubator is a brand new space for students, researchers and staff who are working on research or an idea that can be commercialised. We currently offer free desk space, meeting areas & instant access to the growing entrepreneurial community who share and contribute experience and resources that help early ideas grow through the difficult and vulnerable stages of development.

If you are working on an idea, big or small, we encourage you to apply by email with a one paragraph pitch on your business or idea.

The Pop-Up Incubator is made possible by funding from the NSW Department of Industry, Skills and Regional Development through the Boosting Business Innovation Program.
