UNE SMART Region Incubator

We Are a Regional Business Incubator

Imagine having a framework of administrative and business support around your new or SME business while it grows. Imagine working within a network of other professionals a few months, years or decades on from where you are now.

The UNE SMART Region Incubator is friendly, focused and connected space built to join regional businesses with growth potential together with academic business research, business mentors, corporate and community partners.

New businesses come here to work hard, build smart, fail well and pivot fast.

We Are Innovating Agtech Across Regional Australia

We’ve been growing an ecosystem from a rich history of agriculture leadership since before Agtech was cool. Access deep data-connections from the University of New England, plant a breakthrough sensor in the UNE SMART Farm – or pivot, and work with others on humanity’s survival tools for next century.

We are breathing challenges like these and need your creativity and innovation, outside of the city limits – where good air, fresh data and bold ideas live.

We Are Founders, Mentors & Innovation Partners

It all starts with Founders. Fresh Start-ups, grow into Established SMEs. If you want to be part of the community, but can’t relocate, join us as an Affiliate Founder. There’s a place for you at the UNE SMART Region Incubator.

Mentors guide Founders through their growth journey. Old hands and domain experts from business and academia. We’re always on the look-out for more Mentors; connect with us, and help Founders build their business while you excel yours.

Innovation Partners give back time and opportunities. They keep their eyes on the bigger picture and keep Founders and Mentors on track. Bring your Corporate opportunities or your community connections. Engage other members with your network; tap into theirs.
