UOW's start-up incubator and accelerator
iAccelerate is both a program and a community of entrepreneurs, located within a world class university.
We are a unique pre-accelerator, accelerator and incubator program where you can nurture your idea or scale-up your existing business. Entrepreneurs, startups, scale-ups, social enterprises and intrapreneurs thrive.
At iAccelerate you are supported by a robust model of education, mentoring, seed funding and unparalleled access to one of the world’s most innovative research universities. Housed in the purpose-built iAccelerate Centre are the most innovative minds, creative ideas and entrepreneurial vibe that make it a unique place to start your business and scale it.
Step inside and discover the potential to grow your idea or business and its impact.
The iAccelerate program is designed to support your business as it grows. You’ll learn the foundational business skills you need to go from initial idea to sustainable business, but it’s much more than that. At iAccelerate we teach our start-ups and companies to understand the impact of their business, supplementing those ‘hard’ skills in business development with a focus on sustainability, collaboration and building a social conscience into your business model.
