Victoria has a new home for innovation with the official launch of the refurbished Goods Shed North, which brings together leading startups across a range of sectors including medtech, agtech, fintech and cyber security.

Minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy Philip Dalidakis launched the Victorian Innovation Hub at the historic 111-year-old building in the heart of Melbourne’s Docklands.

The space will be led by LaunchVic, Victoria’s startup development agency, and will house 360 of Australia’s top startups, accelerators and incubators.

The multi-sector innovation hub brings together specialists including fintech startup hub Stone & Chalk, agtech accelerator SproutX, Australia’s national medtech accelerator The Actuator, leading technology accelerator Startmate and the CSIRO’s data analytics experts Data61.
