Troy HainesCofounder / Managing Director theSPACE Australasia
As an entrepreneur and founder of theSPACE (a hub for commercialising ideas), Troy has worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs across Australia to develop and commercialise ideas.
Troy and the team at theSPACE have developed world class startup & innovation programs that help support people with ideas to make money from those ideas, quickly, efficiently and as risk adversely as possible.
We understand how tough it can be to back yourself and go after your idea, that’s why we’ve created a community of support specifically for the development of ideas, if you are someone with an idea, we invite you to reach out.
