Cultivating Future Entrepreneurs

As Australia’s engaged University, the Southern Cross Enterprise Lab activates future entrepreneurs to develop solutions to problems worth solving. 

The Enterprise Lab nurtures the innovation ecosystem in the Northern Rivers region through vibrant collaboration between entrepreneurs, researchers and students. Providing access to resources, knowledge, talent, and spaces to turn ideas into action. A dynamic place where solution-driven entrepreneurs start, grow and scale, and a venue for meaningful and immersive events and workshops. 

It enables the development of enterprise capabilities in problem solving, critical thinking, and communication. These highly portable skills provide significant opportunity to apply an innovative approach to overcome challenges and experiment with new and forward-thinking ideas.

What is the Enterprise Lab?

The Southern Cross Enterprise Lab is virtual and physical all at the same time. 

The Enterprise Lab is a physical co-working and activation space located in Lismore and functions as a node in the NSW entrepreneurial ecosystem organised around the Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE). Participants of Enterprise Lab programs have unrestricted access to the physical co-working space for the duration of their program.
