ENTERPRISE HUB

Welcome to UniSA's Enterprise Hub

In 2021, we will launch the UniSA Enterprise Hub through an online gateway, with a physical shopfront in Light Square to follow in 2022. A space where research meets education, the Enterprise Hub will make it easy for businesses, industry and community groups to partner and collaborate with the University on research and business innovation projects.

The Enterprise Hub will give a new lease on life to an iconic Adelaide landmark. The heritage listed building in Light Square was originally a warehouse for agricultural company Goldsbrough Mort before becoming a nightclub, then transforming into the popular Night Train Theatre Restaurant in the 1990s.

The Enterprise Hub will unite industry partners with UniSA researchers, educators and students on activities that solve real problems, drive progress and shape business and community prosperity in South Australia and beyond. It will also co-locate the experience and expertise of UniSA Ventures, Research and Innovation Services (RIS) and the Innovation and Collaboration Centre (ICC), whose work ranges from supporting startups to mature business regeneration and commercialisation.

The Enterprise Hub’s integrated approach will:

  • Create opportunities for business and industry partners to access and leverage UniSA’s research capability, supporting and strengthening our economy and society
  • Support founders, entrepreneurs and startups to develop and grow innovative or disruptive ideas, providing the tools and resources for commercial success
  • Unlock the commercial potential of research by bridging the gap between researchers, industry and investors
  • Provide access to investment opportunities in UniSA’s world-leading technology portfolio and spin-out companies
  • Foster connections between UniSA specialist talent and industry and community partners, generating opportunities for business innovation to scale, regenerate and chart sustainable futures.
