A Request from Member Alison Ollerenshaw: PhD Study Survey: Relationship between business incubator services (such as networking; mediation and training) and the well being of tenants.
Members may also be interested in taking part in a study to explore the relationship between the characteristic services of business incubators and tenants’ positive psychological wellbeing, from the perspective of incubator managers.
This study is being undertaken by Alison Ollerenshaw a PhD Candidate and Research Fellow at the Federation University Australia Ballarat Victoria email@example.com.

Seeking interest from experienced co-working and incubator organisations that can make a significant contribution to strengthening South Australia’s start-up community and growing a pipeline of future job-creating businesses by becoming anchor tenants in the Hub.
Registrations of interest are also invited from the entrepreneurial and business community, including start-up and scale-up businesses, accelerators, professional service providers to register their interest in leasing space or providing services.
The new Hub will be housed at Lot Fourteen, Adelaide’s seven-hectare creation and innovation neighbourhood and will become an iconic destination for entrepreneurs and innovators.
Lot Fourteen will be globally connected through its ultra-fast gigabit internet and is the only location of its type in Australia where you can work alongside investors and researchers and like-minded entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Nestled against the Adelaide Botanic Garden and a stone’s throw from some of the best restaurants, bars and shopping in the city, Lot Fourteen is one of the most exciting urban redevelopments in the world. For more information visit www.industryandskills.sa.gov.au/eoi
