“Hunter iF accelerates innovation through connection and collaboration”

Innovation In The Hunter

The Hunter region (in New South Wales, Australia) has been recognised for innovation since it was established in 1804. Hunter iF exists to accelerate innovation and catalyse regional transformation in the Hunter through connection and collaboration.

How Hunter iF is changing what it means to be an entrepreneur in Australia – listen to the podcast.

Hunter iF is an independent member-based for-purpose support organisation that encourages and facilitates innovation, investment, jobs, and growth in the Hunter. It does this by providing a unified hub for founders, entrepreneurs, students and businesses from in and around the Hunter to access a comprehensive, cohesive, and accessible package of services, programs and opportunities to support them at any stage of business.

Hunter iF is accelerating the evolution of innovative ideas to successful outcomes by connecting its members and their opportunities in the Hunter with support from across New South Wales, Australia and beyond. By working collaboratively with the regional innovation community, Hunter iF can unite our region’s best and brightest with the tools and resources they need to succeed.


Our sponsors play a vital role in helping Hunter iF support the local Innovation Ecosystem and exist to encourage all innovators in the region to exceed expectations.
