At theSPACE Cairns we believe entrepreneurship is for Everyone

Do you have an idea? An innovation? Would you like to learn around best practice startup & innovation strategy?

At theSPACE Cairns we believe entrepreneurship is for Everyone

The world is changing faster than ever before. We operate in a global marketplace, with global opportunities and global competition. As entrepreneurs working on our own ideas, we recognised the need to shift our focus to a global marketplace, however we soon became aware of the limitations of the existing support structures in our region to help us develop our ideas. 

Over the past four and a half years, the team at theSPACE has been working with key strategic partners to develop the local startup and innovation ecosystem in Far North Queensland. Our intention has been to help develop an environment to support us (all of us) to more effectively turn our ideas into reality. 

Whether you are new to business, running an existing business, an inventor or a larger corporation wishing to integrate innovation into its culture… we are linked by one core desire – “turning ideas into a commercial reality”

We encourage you to get involved in theSPACE by becoming a member, joining the Coworking Space or reaching out for a 1:1 consultation.
