Sydney may be the innovation capital of Australia, but Macquarie Park, in the city’s north, is leading the charge as the nation’s premier innovation location.

A thriving ecosystem of technology, entrepreneurship and commercialisation, Macquarie Park’s business community is collaborating on – and accelerating – ideas that will define the future.

As Australia’s number-one region for intellectual property registrations – ahead of the Sydney CBD, Brisbane and Melbourne – the Macquarie Park Innovation District (MPID) is at the cutting edge of research and development, with a growing number of pioneering institutions calling it home. Think CSIRO, Optus, AMP Capital, NAB, Abbott, Johnson & Johnson, Cochlear, Fujitsu, Konica Minolta, MQ Health, and Macquarie University.

Drawn by the prospect of doing business in a community dedicated to fostering collaboration and commercialisation, the concentration of companies in the professional, scientific, and technical services industry in the MPID is 17.4 per cent – higher than any other region in NSW. 

Driving further innovation and growth are the MPID’s collaboration hubs The Incubator and Venture Café. 

Macquarie University’s Incubator is home to a nexus of students, researchers, start-ups, and intrapreneurs exploring, developing, and scaling ideas through bespoke education programs delivered by leaders in their field. And, as part of a global network, Venture Café is growing and connecting the innovation community through events and programs that nurture people and their ideas to succeed.
