The Hunter region has a rich history of innovation and ingenuity, of reinvention and resilience, of gritty creativity and industry. With major infrastructure developments underway and an accelerating innovation scene now is the Hunter’s time.

Introducing Hunter iF. Built on the back of at least a decade of activity, Hunter iF’s mission is to harness our region’s immense potential to help create a more innovative future.

Hunter iF has been established as a not-for-profit support organisation to encourage and facilitate investment, jobs and growth as our region undergoes significant change. It does this by providing a hub for innovation in the Hunter through a comprehensive, connected and cohesive package of services, programs and opportunities. Hunter iF is accelerating innovative ideas to successful outcomes – contact us today.
