South Australia is synonymous with creativity, progressive thinking, social reform and industry leadership.
We are innovation leaders, and for a small state we punch well and truly above our weight.
And the world is noticing.
As you walk the streets, you can feel that Adelaide is transforming. There is a vibrancy in our city’s culture and nightlife, and this is carrying through to our entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystems.
The South Australian Government is working hard to nurture and support our innovative entrepreneurs and start-ups. We have a growing critical mass of brilliant minds whose clever and creative enterprises are taking the world by storm.
Support for innovation to create jobs
We are attracting some of the globe’s biggest accelerators to Adelaide, including MassChallenge and Techstars, and we have established programs to support our innovation ecosystem, from the $10 million Early Commercialisation Fund to the $50 million Venture Capital Fund.
South Australia is smarter and better connected through our $7.6 million GigCity Adelaide network, which has brought super-fast internet to key innovation precincts.
And we are building a world-class health and medical precinct, the $3.6 billion Adelaide BioMed City, which will be the largest health and biomedical cluster in the southern hemisphere.
Whether you have an idea you want to get off the ground, or you want to expand your business or connect to the rest of the world with high-speed internet, Adelaide is the place to do it.
South Australia is fast becoming the default location for Australia’s best and brightest minds with world-leading ideas and businesses being developed right here.
