Since 2015, the Innovation & Collaboration Centre has supported early-stage startups through providing workspace, mentoring and funding. Read more about our staff and our startups.



Framework was founded in 2020 by Albert Marashi, along with co-founders, Lachlan Hislop, Will Gerard, Alain Bauwmans and Jack Gallagher-Bohn.

Framework is an all-in-one tool for teams and individuals which can be used for project management, sales pipeline & customer relationship management, wiki & documentation, team communication (team chat, voice & video calls), and meeting

Inspired by the way our minds understand and stores information. Framework helps organise ideas using nodes. A node is a piece of information and each node is connected and related to other nodes. For example, a company is a node, and each staff member of that company is a related node, enabling a user store information in any way imaginable.

Framework’s focus in on its ability to integrate with other tools and can be fully customized for each aspect of the workspace, and workflow depending on what works for you. Unlike many other tools, Framework allows you to filter your nodes and display them in different types of views, ranging from kanban boards, tables, gantt charts, calendars, lists, grids, and more.
