Who We Are

Australia’s Leading Business Incubator for Advanced Technology Startups

At Cicada Innovations (formerly known as ATP Innovations), we believe that innovation led by visionary entrepreneurs profoundly impacts peoples lives and shapes future generations. We are Australia’s first and largest business incubator bringing long-term tailored business support to advanced technology entrepreneurs.

Founded in 2000 by four Australian Universities – University of Technology Sydney, University of Sydney, University of New South Wales and Australian National University – Cicada Innovations has a client portfolio of more than 70 high growth startups working on novel products in life sciences, hardware and enterprise software technology sectors. Our full-time mentors have over 50 years of combined experience working with early-stage technology businesses, helping them raise $264 million, sell products across the globe, and for eight, exiting their business via a trade sale or an IPO.

Like our portfolio companies, Cicadas emerge fully formed from their period of incubation and are equipped to take on the world. Read more about the change from ATP Innovations to Cicada Innovations here.

What is Advanced technology?

Advanced technology based startups are startups founded on scientific discovery, meaningful engineering innovation or enterprise applications of data science. These are technology intensive businesses with a sustainable competitive advantage through products and services that are hard to replicate. Advanced technology startups typically require specific technical domain expertise, significant amount of capital and resources to scale.

In 2014 Cicada Innovations was awarded “World’s Best Incubator” and “Technology Focus Incubator of the Year” awards by the International Business Incubator Association (InBIA) – the peak global body for business incubation and entrepreneurship, with over 2800 members globally.
