We work directly with start-up and established businesses, and also assist economic development agencies, universities and private developers to launch innovation projects. We are based on the Sunshine Coast – just north of Brisbane, Australia.

Our Start, Grow and Exit services provide structured support to help you achieve your business goals and increase your chance of success.

If you are seeking to advance your region’s economy, Causeway can help through a range of practical programs and strategic advice. Services include programs to support startups and high potential businesses, development of physical and virtual innovation hubs and digital economy projects.

Causeway draws on valuable experience gained working with over 100 start-up and small businesses, 50 of the world’s most successful companies and economic development projects across Australia.


Our name – in the footsteps of Giants

The inspiration for the Causeway Innovation name comes from the Giant’s Causeway – a world heritage site and natural wonder in Northern Ireland.

The Giant’s Causeway consists of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. According to legend, the Causeway was built by an Irish giant so that they could get across to fight a Scottish giant across the sea.

The Causeway has inspired generations of artists, writers, musicians and now Causeway Innovation. It was chosen to suggest connectivity and a way ahead – and reflects the founder’s Irish heritage.
