Research | Better ideas happen in person
"In a laboratory study and a field experiment across five countries (in Europe, the Middle East and South Asia), we show that videoconferencing inhibits the production of creative ideas.

Tree-Friendly Certification
Does your food come from a tree-friendly farm? Farmers plant hundreds of trees each year and care for our native wildlife.  Tree loss and land clearing continue to occur throughout Australia’s farming systems. “Treegan Certified” aims to develop a certification program that recognises the positive environmental impact occurring on-farm which currently goes unnoticed and unacknowledged. The Treegan Certified logo will alert customers to tree-friendly products, providing a level of choice not currently available in food or fibre products. Winner of the inaugural 2022 HATCH Idea Generation Program receiving $500 and recipient of the IdeaSpies prize.

Working remotely from the office
Some companies used the new normal of working from home as an opportunity to make this a viable option for all of their employees moving forward. Unfortunately, not all employees have the luxury of a suitable space in their tiny apartments or rooms that allows for effective working from home yet provides sufficient privacy after work is done. ProximalSpace is solving this problem by connecting HR and line managers with office spaces in the neighbourhood of their team members, reducing the time wasted on long commutes while providing working environments with dedicated infrastructure and security.https://www.siliconbeach.org.au/start-ups/proximalspace
