About Silicon Lakes

Silicon Lakes is a not-for-profit, volunteer driven, startup incubator based on the Gold Coast in Australia

The primary aim of the program is to help our startups find their business model, win their initial customers, and gain traction. Our secondary aim is to assist our startups to obtain further financing either in Australia or the US.


The SURF Program is primarily focused on technology startups chasing large global markets with exceptional founders. We also bring in student interns from local Universities and TAFE to work in the startups during the program.


The Gold Coast is the ideal location to launch a new startup. Enjoy the lifestyle that other startup entrepreneurs can only dream about.


Our mantra is “less talk, more action”. Put another way: “shut-up, build something, and sell it”.

We believe that ideas are worthless, but execution is priceless, and speed to market is one of the primary success factors in execution. We believe it is better for a product to be live than perfect.

We believe the metrics that matter are sustainable customer acquisitions, repeat customer engagement, and revenues. We believe it is much better to have customers before you have a product, rather than the other way around.
