How would you leverage exponential technologies to address Australia’s grand challenges in energy, environment, food, shelter, space, water, disaster resilience, governance, health, learning, prosperity and security?
How would this improve the lives of millions of people in Australia and around the globe in 5 – 10 years?
The purpose of the SingularityU Australia Incubation Hub is to foster entrepreneurs, startups and anyone with moonshot ideas to have positive impact. We intend to improve the lives of Australians and scale the moonshot to impact a billion people worldwide in 10 years.
We run 3 2-day Bootcamp Weekends each year. We invite our experts in to share wisdom on pitching, branding and commercialisation and our expert faculty come in as mentors. Attendance is by application or invitation only.
Australia is the only continent country on this planet. Covering an immense area of the globe, naturally, the people of Australia are diverse and all-encompassing. With that comes a vast array of innovation, continuously proving to strive and thrive through adversity and necessity. Let’s rise to the occasion and showcase the innovative and creative ideas from Australia that have the potential to positively impact the world. Our Incubation Hub was born from the success of our Global Impact Challenges held in 2019.
Once you have attended an Incubation Hub Bootcamp, you are part of our SingularityU Australia community. We continue to support our community in as many ways as possible. Our Alumni include Bindi Maps, Neutopia, Matter and other startups making their mark while making the world a better place.
Marine Futures Lab
Marine Futures Lab is working globally to document the status of over-fished open-ocean wildlife, pioneering video-based field methods, and developing open-source automated software for video processing. Cost-effective equipment and open-source processing mean scientists and managers around the world, including developing countries where financial resources are most limited and overfishing is greatest, can generate the knowledge needed to halt and reverse ocean wildlife declines.
As the world struggles with overwhelming food wastage, RipeTime has developed a patented technology to help proactively deal with the problem, in the form of an atmosphere reader. Cost-effective ethylene detection allows users to accurately forecast ripeness of produce, receive real-time alerts and automate ethylene cleaners & other ag-tech systems.
