Incubate IT operates from an Innovation Hub in Bank Place, Melbourne central business district. It is co-located with technical and management resources as needed. The location is closely located to public transport, universities, cafés, restaurants and accommodation. Incubate IT offers a range of services that will appeal to anyone seeking support from a startup incubator or innovation accelerator.

At its core, IT innovation should lead to an improved or a more efficient way to deliver an objective. This is consistent with the aim of sustainability, to deliver on society’s wants and needs without compromising the environment and community of the future. Incubate IT will prioritise sustainability in the selection of partners and projects funded
