Our mission

Startup Tasmania exists to promote and support startup businesses across the state. We're an intelligent, dedicated group determined to build a strong future through invention and innovation.


Yup! Our focus is on businesses with plans to rapidly scale their offering. It doesn't matter if you're product or service based, how long you've been operating or which industry you associate with - what matters is your potential.

If you're opening a small retail shopfront to keep you busy until retirement, we're not much use to you. But, if your plan is to disrupt your industry by introducing some new-fangled way of operating said small retail shopfront, leading to an international franchise, we're all over that game.

Awesome! How do I get involved?

We're glad you asked! You could become a financial member or sponsor, volunteer your time or attend one of our events.
