What type of products is Seedlab Tasmania for?

Our incubator program is for Tasmanian startup businesses developing products or services in the food, drink or agri-tourism industry that have global potential, who need advice, assistance and introductions.

What is considered a startup?

A startup are defined officially as “An innovative, adaptive, early stage and scaleable company, with global potential”.

Generally a startup will have been trading for less then 3 years and is not yet investor ready.

Is it for me?

Are you based in Tasmania?

Have you been trading for less than 3 years, or not at all yet?

Do you intend that a significant proportion of jobs and economic growth created by your activity will occur in Tasmania?

Do you have an interest in selling your products beyond Australia in the next 5 years?

What type of business isn’t suited to this incubator?

If you are already an existing company with a long trading history, are setting up a new division or a new entity within a consolidated group…..


If you are creating an Australian office of an established multi-national…


If you are an SME with a proven sales record and credit history that can access finance…..
