About Us

Launched at Spacecubed’s 10-year anniversary, Meshpoints is 3-year program supported by Lotterywest.

The $5.9 million program exists to elevate the already active innovation ecosystem to its next level of maturity and development. Through Meshpoints, the WA community will work together to support a thriving, resilient ecosystem of innovations, change-makers and entrepreneurs.


Meshpoints enables access to the community for aligning, sharing and learning and support to prioritise, endorse and progress projects.

WA Innovation Ecosystem Index

The WA Innovation Ecosystem Index is an online platform showcasing ecosystem stories, events and activities over time.  

Innovative Society Fund

The Innovative Society Fund, made up of three streams, exists to support initiatives and innovations being developed by the ecosystem. 

Meshpoints achieves its mission through three pillars of activities:

Stewards, for representing the ecosystem

Stewards are nominated representatives of the ecosystem that form the governance body for Meshpoints. Stewards are elected each year and assist the Meshpoints team in providing support to the ecosystem, defining priorities and providing input into the review of Innovative Society Fund applications.

In 2024, MIT REAP – Team Western Australia and Meshpoints combined stakeholder groups to increase representation across the ecosystem in eight key areas, as outlined below.
