Our Partners and supporters

Whilst Ozstream exists to support the people in Australia’s Creative and Performing Arts Industry, the industry is also supported by many venues and businesses which invest significant amounts of time and money in helping Australian Artists become their best. It’s for this reason that Ozstream is so grateful for our network of partners and supporters who are each doing their bit to support Ozstream’s start-up endeavours, or in their efforts to create a vibrant arts ecosystem that empowers creativity, sustains artists and enriches the cultural fabric of our nation.

The Canberra Innovation Network

The CBR Innovation Network (aka Canberra Innovation Network or CBRIN) is an initiative of the government of the Australian Capital Territory that was founded in 2014. It was established to accelerate innovation and diversify the economy in the ACT region. The CBR Innovation Network is based on the collaboration of its six Foundation Members: the Australian National University, CSIRO, Canberra Institute of Technology, Data61 (now merged with CSIRO), the University of Canberra, and the University of New South Wales (Canberra, ADFA).

One of the CBR Innovation Network’s primary programs has been the creation of an innovation district in Canberra, which features a business incubator, a start-up accelerator program and a co-working space. Regardless of where you find yourself located, we strongly recommend that anyone with a business idea hook-in with their local innovation network.

Much of the speed and success Ozstream’s has enjoyed as we’ve moved through our start-up phase has been the result of the tools and information provided to us by CBRIN’s. If you’re in the A.C.T. – definitely check out all of CBRIN’s events, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
