Turning Ideas or Research Into Reality

In Start-up Formation everything learned in the first two modules is put into practice and used to translate research discoveries, or any innovative idea or product into a tangible outcome. By providing access to our Team Mentor Program, a variety of additional learning and networking opportunities and the option to take up residence in a CERI-based office space, we aim to ensure CERIans have all the tools they need for successful commercialisation.

For those who do wish to see their research and other discoveries become a commercial reality, the final module of the CERI program can facilitate this. Upon completion of Concept to Creation, interested CERIans will be assessed by our Mentor Advisory Panel to evaluate their suitability for Start-Up Formation.


As part of the third module of the CERI program, start-ups have the opportunity to be considered for office space at the CERI Headquarters located only 10 minutes from Perth’s CBD.

Resident companies have access to either shared or private offices that cater to start-up businesses.

Some of the amenities include:

High-speed Wi-Fi

Common area and kitchen

Access to the business centre and board room

Conference and meeting facilities

Access to the CERI library

Allocated onsite parking

Continual Growth

All start-up companies involved in Start-Up Formation are asked to provide regular progress reports. They are reviewed every 12 months by the Scientific and Investment Advisory Panel, Mentors, and the CERI CEO to retain their position.
