Coffs Harbour Innovation Centre

The Innovation Centre (Coffs Harbour Education Campus Technology Park) provides a high-tech, creative, fun and innovative environment for new start companies primarily in the tech space, and it works closely with each client company to help accelerate its growth and achieve its potential. So, the incubator is really much more about a dynamic and networked business development ‘experience’, rather than simply an office space. Council is a partner in the Innovation Centre and encourages businesses looking to take the next step to explore the centre or contact the Coordinator on 02 6658 8199.
