The Darwin Innovation Hub Incubator is owned by the Paspalis Enterprise Trust, a Darwin based Australian privately-owned trust.
It operates for purpose, to commercialize start-ups and generate economic growth for the Northern Territory innovation ecosystem and ensure all funds received are applied to its programs and operating costs.
The DIH was established in 2017 with an investment of $500,000 from the Paspalis family office leveraged by matched funding it was awarded under the Federal Incubator Support Program and a grant from the Northern Territory Government.
The DIH currently raises funds through:
- Membership and sponsorships from private sector and government entities.
- Grants from the Australian Government.
- Grants from the Northern Territory Government
- Subscriptions and ticket sales for events.
We have a strong conflict of interest policy to which our staff and contractors must adhere.
We gratefully acknowledge all our funding partners.
Their support sustains the DIH and ensures the quality and professionalism of our work.
