About Us

Fishburners is the largest tech co-working space in Australia.

We are a not-for-profit charitable institution based in Ultimo Sydney.

We have housed 100s of entrepreneurs and over 115 startup businesses in our co working space, providing the basic necessities to run a tech startup. Companies can obtain access:

  • daily for $40
  • permanently for $300 per month
  • up to 3 days per week on the community ‘hot desk’ bench for $200 each per month
  • to the ground floor for teams of 3+
There are no equity splits, we are not an incubator, we are not an accelerator.

As a not-for-profit charitable institution we can provide desk space at 50% of market rates, reducing your burn rate and increasing your chance of success.
