Welcome to ACS Labs Community Update – a fortnightly snapshot sharing what’s been happening across our three innovation hubs.

ACS Labs is powered by the Australian Computer Society ( ACS ) and boasts three premium innovation hubs in Brisbane – River City Labs, Sydney – Harbour City Labs and Melbourne – Bay City Labs.

Each location is focussed on growing and scaling tech startups and providing support for founders who are product focussed and building for global markets.

The startup community came together for River City Labs’ community coffee morning. The community initiative is a great way to meet the River City Labs team, members and the startup community. Community Coffee is held fortnightly on Tuesday.

The Governor-General the Honourable David Hurley and Mrs Hurley visited The Precinct, meeting and greeting with the startup community.
