At IQX, we help small to medium enterprises (SMEs) grow, scale and commercialise. We believe in bridging the gap between industry and academia. The ‘X’ in IQX stands for knowledge exchange: the exchange of knowledge and ideas between researchers and industry encourages creativity, disruption and innovation. Since 2018, IQX members have secured more than AUD$2 million in investments and generated 46 new jobs. In just one success story, digital health company Progressive Medical was acquired by Curve Tomorrow and is now working to improve the lives of 1 billion people worldwide. In a unique operating model, IQX is an innovation and collaboration space powered by a partnership between The University of Western Australia and Business Foundations, the largest not-for-profit business advisory service in Australia. We combine our resources to facilitate partnerships that have far-reaching benefits for SMEs, students and researchers. IQX’s members have access to academic expertise, student talent and alumni networks, while the University’s students and researchers can tap into the knowledge and capacity of IQX members, who work across tech start-ups, social enterprises and investment firms, medtech companies and consultancies. Further, IQX is a member of the Asian Association of Business Incubation, the region’s only network of business incubators and co-working spaces. This gives IQX members access to over 8,000 spaces across Asia and market entry to an extensive ecosystem of partners and customers. With a unique focus on growing SMEs through university collaboration, IQX is committed to nurturing innovation in the region.
