Spacecubed Innovative Society Initiative
Spacecubed Innovative Society Initiative, supported by Lotterywest, provides support to the growth of ideas that can have a significant impact on the Western Australian community, and aims to accelerate the number of people inspired to innovate within the State and ensure that those innovators have the ‘mind-sets, skill-sets and tool-sets’ to successfully grow their ideas.
If we as a community don’t invest in being a smart and innovative society, we will be more susceptible to problems and disruption.
This needs investment in the skillsets, toolkits and mindsets of West Australians, not only to support individuals and ideas to thrive, but to build a more diverse, resilient community and economy.
If we don’t do these things then disadvantaged and vulnerable people will be adversely impacted to a greater degree which embeds challenges for the long term.
The Innovative Society Fund supported by Lotterywest, exists to build a stronger culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in Western Australia. It includes two Fund Streams, Lotterywest IdeaStarter and Catalyst.
Lotterywest IdeaStarter offers grants to eligible WA organisations up to $15,000 for each participant in their program. Catalyst, supported by Spacecubed and Lotterywest, is designed for organisations leading new or expanded innovation initiatives that can enhance the capacity of the Western Australian innovation ecosystem.
