Holger Dielenberg

Northcote, Victoria

Educator, mentor, creator

Holger is the founder of Space Tank Studio – Melbourne’s first ‘makerspace’ that supports emerging
designers and accelerates small business growth. He is providing innovative and creative Australians
with affordable DIY access to machinery, technology, fabrication space and skills courses. The high cost of advanced manufacturing creates barriers to entry that blocks many of our talented designers. To help meet Australia’s innovation challenge, Holger has committed himself to expanding Space Tank’s range of technology. He is using his grant to support his ‘21st-century TAFE’ and purchase much-needed equipment like 3D scanners, vacuum formers and computer numeric control machines. “This grant helps me to strengthen the ‘Australian made’ brand by providing an incubator platform that supports tomorrow’s makers today.”
