Meshpoints was set up in 2015 by Pollinators and Spacecubed in response to regular requests for support from other regions, and identification of the need and opportunity to grow innovation capacity in the regions. The Meshpoints model aims to create a generative means of growing regional innovation and capacity, as an alternative or complement to government-funding-dependency and city-based commercial fly-in-fly-out consultancies. Meshpoints' mission is to provide practical support to local innovation facilitators who deliver social benefits to regional communities.
