QUT Creative Enterprise Australia (CEA) helps start, grow, scale and connect creative companies and is Australia’s only dedicated creative industries accelerator.
Since 2008, over 4,000 entrepreneurs have engaged in CEA’s services. We have supported over 500 creative companies on site, created over 50 startups and established Australia’s first creative Startup Fund. CEA offers access to workspace, business mentoring, special events, networks, research expertise and capital to foster the growth of the creative industries in Australia.
We are a commercial company owned by Queensland University of Technology (QUT) with an independent Board of Directors set up to help grow creative businesses. We were established to help provide ‘real world’ enterprise services to support the growth of creative industries. We work with creative companies at different stages but our services are not exclusive to QUT graduates, so we would love to see how we can help your company.
Startups benefit from access to mentoring, networking and training opportunities, research, workspace solutions and production facilities.
Creative businesses are provided with essential business skills through a range of services tailored to the creative industries as well as access to leading technology, office space and facilities.
Thanks to our close relationship with QUT you can access the latest research and university resources which could help boost your company prospects. We work closely with the QUT through their award winning Creative Industries Faculty to explore research in areas which will contribute to enhancing business competitiveness.
