More than just a desk
With an EnergyLab coworking membership, you'll have access to centrally-located office space and a thriving community of cleantech founders in person and online.
A home and community for your startup
Base yourself at our coworking space in Sydney or Melbourne for access to a great range of benefits in the office and online.
Our coworking spaces offer access to desks (dedicated and shared options available) plus all the essentials like internet, meeting rooms and kitchen facilities.
In Sydney, our premises in the historic Blackfriars School House (on the University of Technology Sydney's city campus) also include large cafe, event and outdoor areas.
A thriving online community
EnergyLab members gain access to an internal Slack workspace used by founders to share useful information, offer assistance, or just lend a sympathetic ear to fellow founders as they rise to meet the challenges of cleantech entrepreneurship.
Weekly member updates
Stay up to date and never miss an opportunity again. Every week we round up the latest news, events, resources and opportunities that cleantech entrepreneurs need to know about, and send it to our members in an easy-to digest-format.
Weekly member meetups
Regular virtual meetups help keep our members kicking networking and professional development goals. We mix it up each week, with meetups ranging from workshops on topics requested by our members to more informal peer-to-peer 'startup shares'.
Quickly connect with any other EnergyLab member by looking them up in the member directory. Unless they opt out, every member's name, company and email address is listed in the directory to make it as easy as possible for members to connect and collaborate.
Celebrate the end of the working week and get to know fellow cleantech founders with a casual Friday afternoon (video) chat.
Gain access to our virtual library of industry reports, legal templates, how-to guides and other useful resources, making it quicker and easier to find the information you need when you need it.

What we look for in new members
We're our community's biggest fans, keen to ensure the best possible fit for all new members.
We're looking for founders of businesses with the potential to grow fast and make a significant impact on important environmental challenges like climate change.
Community fit and contribution
It's our members that bring the community to life. We're 100 per cent committed to the values of respect, trust and a 'give first' mentality, and uber-proud of the thriving community that has grown around them.
Entrepreneurs working on a high growth business with significant environmental benefits are welcome to apply.
No but you can gain access to our mentor network by adding on a premium membership for $66/person/month (including GST), which is a discounted rate for coworking members.
COVID-Safe plans are in place for our Sydney and Melbourne coworking spaces, and are updated regularly in line with any changes to government restrictions.
Payment is made monthly (at the start of each month, for the month ahead) via a direct debit arrangement we'll set up once your membership has been confirmed.
