Landcom Urban Futures property industry technology accelerator

We are partnering with Western Sydney University to support innovation in the property sector through our Urban Futures accelerator program.

This property technology accelerator is a six-month, property industry-specific program designed to support selected startups to fast-track product development and commercialisation opportunities in the property sector.

The purpose of this leadership initiative is to seed and grow innovation within the property development industry in support of Landcom's and the University’s strategic priorities and aspirations for enhanced urban living in Western Sydney, NSW and Australia.

Urban Futures is supported through Western Sydney University’s Launch Pad Incubator. Our investment and commitment to innovation programs like Urban Futures are now even more important in our support for a post- COVID-19 recovery in the property sector.

The accelerator is leveraging the rapid growth of Western Sydney and the property development ecosystem
across Landcom, the University and a range of partners to promote innovation in urban living design and development.
Through the program, Urban Futures accelerator startups and small to medium enterprises have access to a range of our industry specialists and Western Sydney University Launch Pad Entrepreneur-in-residence, mentors and commercialisation experts.

The 10 startups focus on creative approaches to address challenges in property development, construction and urban design areas including:

  • Community and education;
  • Liveability;
  • Sustainability;
  • Markets and finance; and
  • Compliance and regulation management.

In FY21 our Urban Futures startups will present their progress in a showcase demonstration event, and the program concludes in late 2020.

The Urban Futures program demonstrates our investment in industry innovation and reflects the mutual benefits of the ongoing relationship with Western Sydney University.
