Our Get Wanderlost mystery events have been so popular we've now planned our next adventure!

Here's your clue for this event:
Ready for a trip into the hills and far away? Don't forget your manners, "bitte" and "danke" you say.

Get your idea off the ground with $10,000 from Venture Catalyst Space
Do you have an idea that utilises space technology or data? For example, using beacons to help grape growers improve fruit quality by monitoring weather conditions, or satellites to capture images of earth for mining companies.

The Innovation & Collaboration Centre’s Venture Catalyst Space can help get your idea off the ground by providing a $10,000 stipend, a free workspace, workshops and one-on-one mentoring, and tailored support from industry experts including former NASA astronaut Pam Melroy and the Australian Space Agency.

Alumni Spotlight
Eric Peck (Alumni) with drone in Vanuatu.
Using drones to deliver life-changing healthcare
In December 2018, on the dangerously isolated village of South River on Erronmango Island in Vanuatu, baby Joy - just a couple months old - received her first vital vaccine, delivered in a world-first by Swoop Aero's drone and aeromedical logistics network.

Co-founded by Eric Peck, a 30-year-old MBA graduate and former captain in the Air Force, Swoop Aero is transforming the way the world moves essential supplies at an economically efficient cost. Combining all the best practices in aviation from an 80-tonne aircraft and compressing it down into a 20-kilogram 3D printed, plastic airplane, has enabled the team to safely, reliably, and sustainably deliver life-changing medical supplies to those who need them most across the globe.
