Ventures Incubator

Grow your startup with the Ventures Incubator at Long Pocket 

The Ventures Incubator is a startup community and support program based at UQ’s Long Pocket campus.

Startups are invited to join the Ventures Incubator program and connect with a like-minded community. The program membership is available for one year with an additional one-year extension, paid quarterly. The location is an accessible and welcoming co-working space with free on-street parking. 

The Ventures Incubator program is focused on community. We will connect you with UQ’s mentor, founder, and investor network through Ventures programs and events. As founders, you are invited to engage with students to support their own entrepreneurial journey and learning through various guest speaking, mentoring and internship opportunities.

Ben Hallett, CEO and Co-founder of Vygo.

"Vygo would not be the global scale-up that it is today if it wasn't for the ilab program and the Ventures Incubator. Ventures believed in us early on and gave us the funding and early-stage coaching that we needed when we needed it. Ventures pushed us and as a result, we came out of it as stronger founders with a much stronger company."

"We were part of ilab in the early days and it was a great experience to be surrounded by other entrepreneurs and companies starting out! Long Pocket now provides us that same experience while giving us a space to execute our technical vision for Codebots."
