Welcome to the Byford IBDC

Where innovation lives and entrepreneurs thrive

The Byford IBDC is located at the Byford Western Australia. Kicked off in 2020 by Dean Strautins a Shire Councillor. Because of conflict of interest perceptions we are now looking for a leader to take the IBDC forward to establish a not-for-profit company with other waiting and willing founders.
The IBDC is to be a hub for innovators, entrepreneurial startups, existing businesses and high growth companies. The IBDC has a 140 square metre facility as the focal point for a dedicated support team, incubator/ accelerator programs, collaborative events, internet connection, video studio, prototyping lab, meeting rooms, mentor panel, professional partners and access to other awesome facilities and talent.

With an extensive network of local and international connections, the IBDC provides a highly supportive ecosystem that enables you to take a viable product or service to the world with confidence. The IBDC is part of a family of incubation and innovation centres globally where for every $1 contributed there is generated around $15 taxable for the local economy.

The Byford IBDC being located in a rural and urban setting is the perfect juxtaposition creating highly fertile innovation conditions proven globally to be the best foundation for success.

The IBDC is continually developing partnerships such as with Space Cubed that is the innovation hub originating out of the Perth CBD. Space Cubed has been responsible for successful regional innovation centre partnerships and the IBDC is proud to be working with the excellent team and expertise that Space Cubed upholds.

Founders bring their experience to the IBDC as they been involved with innovative business development for many years.

The Importance of Start-ups for Western Australia is described in the below Podcast.
