HoldAccess – Q3 Incubator Scholarship graduate


Four times per year, the DIH offers the opportunity for Northern Territory based start-ups and entrepreneurs to develop their business within the fastest growing Incubator Hub in Northern Australia.

The Q3 cohort were professionally mentored by our Expert-in-Residence Oliver Ciancio and graduated in September 2020. We are pleased to highlight one of our scholars below.

About the business


The government commits millions to major projects regularly, with all projects bound to industry standards. The problem is labor hires are moving on and around worksites constantly, needing proof of compliance to onboard faster and training for worksite standards. We found 50% companies failed random industry audits and when it came to diversity, 90% of companies risk Aboriginality fraud, costing them millions.

At HOLDACCESS we’re building a platform that helps enterprises with people, hold access to verified information instantly. An end to end solution where people collaborate faster with companies dependent on compliance, trusted nationally protecting proof of Aboriginality.


People need to hold identification and access verified information independently, to reduce barriers to fast-track employment & develop career skills raising parity levels. HoldAccess improves diversity and inclusion with a practical toolkit essential for diversity and inclusion getting greater accessibility to culture & capabilities anytime.


Provides added protection when working remotely, quicker access to information, or meeting key procurement conditions that automatically save guards companies from unforeseen costs with improved performances to benefit the Enterprise returns.

  • The professional support and trusted relationships that treats people respectfully as equals.
  • Mentoring has been a most fundamental support in the incubator to help me to discuss concepts in a trusted and confidential environment.
  • Having people locally in Darwin to mentor and support the incubator program is highly important for my business to gain trust with mentors and to open up on the confidential elements of my concepts.
