The Constellation progresses specific initiatives through collaboration amongst Partners. The Fund can choose to support those initiatives if a Lead Partner submits an application for funding. The Fund assessment process includes consideration of whether applicants are a member of the Constellation and if the initiative is endorsed by the Stewardship Group.
The overall Innovative Society Initiative, supported by Spacecubed and Lotterywest is focused on enabling:
- Thriving resilient entrepreneurs, innovators and changemakers
- A thriving, resilient and sustainable innovation ecosystem.
Meshpoints provides the community, governance and developmental support for Western-Australian organisations that share those aims.
Joining as a Partner is free, though you do commit to contributing time and energy to the collaborative initiatives and overall Constellation. The minimum is to attend the annual Congress and contribute to at least one meeting or sub-constellation project during the year.
A Partner is the best role for organisations starting their engagement with Meshpoints. Once you are a Partner you can choose to become Lead Partner of a collaborative initiative. Stewards are individuals elected to govern the Constellation on behalf of all Partners.
Spacecubed activates coworking spaces, provides communities and entrepreneurs with funding and mentorship, and provides research for the innovation sector. The organisation’s objective is to empower positive change through innovation, partnerships and collaboration to build a resilient WA community.
Meshpoints is a collaborative network of individuals and organisations who are passionate about building the skillsets, toolkits and mindsets of Western Australians, not only to support the growth of individuals and ideas, but to build a more diverse, resilient community and economy.
