iAccelerate Events

A key factor that is deemed critical to the development of a healthy, effective and powerful innovation ecosystem is the community that is built around it. Find out more about iAccelerate's events.

Our regular events provide the critical lifeblood to building this community.

Key iAccelerate events include the 

  • iAccelerate Entrepreneur Club (eClub)
  • iAccelerate Entrepreneurial Women's Breakfast Series
  • The Social


Launched in 2011 the iAccelerate Entrepreneur Club (eClub) continues to be a key engagement point and pipeline into the iAccelerate program. iAccelerate Entrepreneur Club focuses on entrepreneurial leader engagement with 1,600+ registered participants on our mailing list and social media platforms. We consistently deliver strong engagement with students, staff and the greater Illawarra business community at all our meetings with 70+ attending each event.

The iAccelerate Entrepreneurial Women's Breakfast Series aims to share the insights and stories of successful entrepreneurial women. The breakfast series provides a forum to discuss the challenges they have encountered and share lessons they have learnt. The series aims to encourage and inspire a conversation with the Illawarra community from the perspective of women, but will appeal to both men and women alike wanting to engage with the Innovation Ecosystem. 

The next iAccelerate Entrepreneurial Women's Breakfast Series will be held on Wednesday 22nd April. View more.

The Social events are designed specifically to facilitate casual networking opportunities for iAccelerate residents, advisors, mentors, businesses and the wider Illawarra community. These events are typically not built around a topic or keynote speaker – they are about the community for the community.
