Wyndham City’s Innovation Hub, SPARK, a collaborative hub where member businesses can be mentored, and digital start-ups and entrepreneurs can elevate their concepts to commercialisation, is now open for expressions of interest (EOI). 

Businesses who become SPARK members gain access to business training, mentoring opportunities and a dedicated council officer to provide support and advice.

Wyndham City Portfolio holder for Future Focused Economy, Cr Mia Shaw, said it was exciting to see the Innovation Hub come to fruition.

“Significant work has been undertaken over the last six months to create an environment that fosters entrepreneurship and collaboration. The hub showcases 25 ergonomic workstations, meeting rooms, collaboration, maker and function spaces and a courtyard BBQ area,” Cr Shaw said.

“We’re committed to fostering a robust local economy and creating local and regional employment opportunities.

“That’s why the Innovation Hub, a key objective in Wyndham City’s Smart City Strategy, is such an important initiative.”

Cr Shaw called on the community to spread the word and reach out to any businesses and entrepreneurs they may know.

“I would encourage businesses who fit the relevant profile to submit an EOI to become part of this exciting opportunity,” Cr Shaw said. 

Successful applicants are offered a 12 month member’s tenancy period, with an option of a further 12 month period at the discretion of Council.

SPARK is located in East Werribee Employment Precinct at 600 Sneydes Road, Werribee, and the EOI period is open from 24 January 2022 and closes 11:59pm 13 February 2022.
