Space Tank provides startups and entrepreneurs with incubator pathways and technology infrastructure to help them commercialise their intellectual property in fields where technology merges with physical products. The positive impact that Space Tank brings to Melbourne’s startup scene has been recognised by the 2018 Melbourne Awards nomination for raising Melbourne’s international profile.
Holger is a recognised leader in Victoria’s startup scene advocating for greater local investment in startups emerging from legacy industry sectors. Holger works closely with trainers, industry leaders, investors, Government representatives and international organisations to deliver business incubator programs that fill applied technology gaps in our startup ecosystem and help entrepreneurs scale into international markets.
