About Us

We are capability builders; providers of support and assistance; and skilled providers of a range of management services.

Lighthouse Business Innovation Centre (Lighthouse) is a lean and agile innovation consultancy founded in 2008.

At Lighthouse we work with people who have ideas.  These people come from all walks of life - entrepreneurs, inventors, researchers and scientists and leaders steering their organisations through periods of major change. But they all have the same vision:  to turn their ideas into reality, build capability and expertise and grow sustainable businesses.  Our team have all experienced the highs and lows of running businesses, securing investment and other forms of funding and we bring this 'warts and all' to the table.

Over the past 7 years we have seen over 6,000 clients; hosted around 170 events; helped businesses raise more than $6million in funding and formed a number of strategic alliances to assist our clients.

At Lighthouse we don't believe in 'one size fits all', we tailor our approach to meet your specific needs and current stage of business development.  We deliver our services in a way that suits you whether that be face-to-face or virtually and we achieve this through a range of free and fee-for-services and delivery mechanisms.

We think our approach is unique.  At Lighthouse we continually strive to make our offering even better and more flexible to suit the many and varied needs of our customers.
