Perth-based Spacecubed and Sync Labs join forces to create unified startup community
Sync Labs, Leederville’s premiere coworking space designed specifically for Perth’s tech startup community where they match investors to entrepreneurs and designers to ideas is now transitioning into a Joint Venture model with Spacecubed, a 1050 square metre innovation space. The entrepreneurs at Sync Lab will be managed by the Spacecubed team to create a unified startup community in Western Australia.
This vision is a huge step for both Spacecubed and Sync Labs – the former has already seen a growth of over 550 members in three years.
With their combined efforts, startups from both Sync Labs and Spacecubed will have instant access to over 1,000 Western Australian entrepreneurs as well as a wealth of knowledge brought by Spacecubed’s team of industry mentors to accelerate ideas.
Spacecubed Managing Director, Brodie McCulloch said, “The Perth startup community is rapidly growing and in order to keep up we need to build a truly collaborative ecosystem in Western Australia to a level where it has the inputs, support, people and funding to generate billion dollar companies. Forming this joint venture with Sync Labs is a massive leap in the right direction for Perth.”
Sync Labs co-founder, Dr Marcus Tan is in line with Brodie’s vision, saying, “ Since its inception in 2012, Spacecubed has been a shining light in the local startup, innovation and coworking scene. This collaboration will create additional benefits for our respective members and we are delighted to be joining forces with a like-minded team committed to helping grow the entrepreneurial and technology ecosystem here in Perth.”
Perth and Western Australia has previously been a mining, oil and agricultural hub. However, leveraging their strengths in spatial technology and data, they will be able to combine the transformative and disruptive power of technology within Western Australia’s startup community.
Sync Labs and Spacecubed have great hopes as the new waves of innovation, entrepreneurship and enterprise seek to create a diversified Western Australian economy for generations to come.
