Cheap rent, 30 day lease periods and access to an awesome community that moonlights as a brains trust. Development is our product here at the Albany Business Centre, and we pride ourselves in offering the space, network and resources for you to develop both yourself (as an evolving professional) and your business (as a living, growing, profiting thing.). We promise we don’t have Bryan Adams on loop here, but everything we do, we do it for you.

In essence, Albany Business Centre is an incubator and co-working space but we also has a commercial kitchen and training room, so if the success of your business relies on food and training, we’ve got your back. We have prioritised giving you a space where you can make, break, test and refine your business so you can expand in a sustainable manner. Read as: scale up so you can afford CBD rent. This is generally when you graduate from the Incubator Incrowd (we think tenants is a bit impersonal) to the Outcrowd. Rent increases reasonably on an annual basis, and towards the four year mark, we throw your graduation party.

We aren’t going to be like your mum when you left home, let’s get this straight, we aren’t going to be coming around to stock up your freezer but we do like to keep in touch, and if we can help you with anything, we will always be there to assist. We love celebrating your milestones and achievements, so you can definitely expect invites to the odd sundowner.

Just like we celebrate growth, we respect, accept and encourage not getting it right the first time. Why? So you know which direction not to go next time. Failing meaningfully is a powerful tool, and valuable experience. What’s that quote about being scared to fall and forgetting that flying is an option?

Success is a squiggly line demetri martin
As you can see, there’s a helleva lot of  flying & falling in Demetri Martin’s journey of success

Because of this, our community is pretty awesome and wonderfully diverse. We don’t judge or discriminate. Whether you’ve got half an idea or a fully fledged business, as long as you’ve got oomph in the tank and a general idea of where you want to go, you are welcome to shack up here.

So, now you know who we are, please let us know who you are! Feel free to drop into the incubator at 222 Chester Pass Road, or come and hang out with us online on Facebook or Instagram. We believe in community and collaboration, we know we can get things done together. But most importantly, we believe in you! So, let’s get your idea off the ground and earning you some hard earned dosh.
