We Build Startups

We are building startups in Ballarat, providing technical expertise, development experience and a community focus.

Whether you need something built, developed, made or just need some advice on your concept, we can help.


Have an idea that you want to see in action? We create prototypes for startups and businesses, helping to visualise ideas and gain interest early.


Our expertise in a range of technologies, including software, hardware and prototype manufacturing, can help you turn your ideas into reality.


We run events and help build the startup community in the Ballarat region, helping keep you up to date with the latest advances.

We've worked with many of the innovators in the region, and can help get you in touch with others to work with.
