We are Data61


We're creating the D61+ Partner Program (D61+), an innovation network focused on data-driven disruption for Australia but with global context. D61+ supports this network in the way we connect and manage our key partnerships across academia, corporations, startups, federal and state government agencies, investors and entrepreneurs.

For incubators and startups

We're working with incubators to bring leveraged value to Australian startups. Under the partnership, startups who participate in D61+ will receive access to global networks, technical and domain expertise, capital and commercialisation pathways. This includes giving incubators access to information around the capability and technology IP which exists within Data61, as well as invitations to selected training events, meetups or public seminars hosted by Data61. 

Startups will be offered access to capability and technical expertise related to data capture, analysis and use including data science, data engineering, user experience (UX) design and human factors; the opportunity to license IP to improve the competitiveness of their business and to allow them to scale faster; and access to commercialisation pathways through our trusted collaboration partners.

For governments, industry and research organisations

We're proud supporters of the eGov Cluster, which is a national cluster of organisations from government, industry, research and academia. Cluster members collaborate to strengthen ICT’s role in the Australian government sector and through this advance both public administration and the ICT industry in Australia.
