The Heritage Futures Lab draws from the learnings and expertise of ongoing industry led co-innovation programs.

The Heritage Futures Lab is built on the expertise and leadership of the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) and the battle-tested co-innovation methodologies of Business Models Inc.

This isn’t our first rodeo. The Heritage Futures Lab has the same DNA as the suite of Lab programs co-authored by Business Models Inc – spanning Australia, San Fransisco and the Netherlands. From the circular economy to the visitor economy, the solutions we explore pave the way towards a brighter tomorrow.

Beyond the 10-week program, the Lab will remain as an ongoing platform to nurture and grow heritage and culture solutions.


The CE Lab has been such a collaborative experience giving the opportunity to individuals from different industries to work together towards the same goal.
