Hargraves Institute - Your Innovation Community

Inspiring Innovation and Collaboration

Hargraves Institute is a membership collaborative; a trust based hub where members share their innovation ideas and experiences. It's a place where you can connect with real people practicing innovation everyday, sharing insights to help you constantly refresh your innovation knowledge.
The key to Hargraves is ‘Collective Wisdom’, shared amongst the members through the art of trusted conversations.
Our difference is what our members bring to the collaborative:
  • An enthusiasm to share their ideas and innovation experiences with you
  • A willingness to connect with fellow members and build direct relationships
  • An understanding that great insights often come from people working in completely different sectors or industries
"Challenging the thinking is the reason to join Hargraves because they are both a great sounding board and encyclopaedia of information and contacts that helps you find the best solution to a complex problem or situation."
Mirjana Prica, Managing Director, Food Innovation Australia Ltd

Our vision is to inspire innovation and collaboration, and we look forward to sharing your innovation journey with you.

  • 123 Innovate® Collaboration Cards

    Our 123 Innovate® Collaboration Cards workshops are now up and running.

    Held in both Melbourne & Sydney, what a fabulous and creative tool to motivate a quick outcome to a project.  You must try them.

    "One of the main impediments to driving innovation is a failure to ask the right questions and best define the opportunities at hand. The 123 process has the best set of questions for this I have ever seen and I now use them in my work. The workshop was great value!" Think Quick (Melbourne workshop)
