Imagine having your company featured as a property on MONOPOLY, the most popular board game in the world. If your business is an innovator based in Northern Sydney, now’s your chance!

This is your one and only opportunity to be featured alongside key influencers in the innovation space on this once in a lifetime edition.

The team at North Sydney Innovation Network, a non-profit organisation, has partnered with Winning Moves and Hasbro to create this first ever MONOPOLY board showcasing innovative Australian businesses and startups.

This edition will see local innovators replace Mayfair and Park Lane from the original MONOPOLY board and include customised “Community Chest” and “Chance” playing cards, making the entire game a truly Northern Sydney experience.

From today until 30 June, you can tell them which companies you’d like to see featured on the board via the official Northern Sydney Innovation MONOPOLY Facebook page, Twitter page, or by emailing

The NSIN is a not-for-profit promoting the contribution of innovation-driven enterprises—particularly startups and fast-growth organisations in North Sydney, the Northern Beaches and the whole North Shore. Chair of the North Sydney Innovation Network Jonathan (Jono) Herrman said, “I’m thrilled to bring this edition to Northern Sydney to bring attention to the many innovative and forward-thinking organisations in this area.”

Winning Moves, manufacturers of the official Northern Sydney Innovation version of MONOPOLY licensed from Hasbro, say the game will be sold through exclusive local businesses. Dale Hackett, Custom Games Manager at Winning Moves, said: “We’re so excited to bring this globally loved game to Northern Sydney. We want to ensure that this edition represents the best-in-class, most innovative businesses in the area.

“We’re asking locals like you to recommend which companies you think should be on the board. Every-one from startups and coworking spaces to forward-thinking corporations, research and educational institutions based in Northern Sydney are eligible to sponsor a space—so get involved!”

Dale adds, “This edition will be everything you love about the traditional board, adapted in a way that Northern Sydney residents will enjoy for generations to come. There will also be opportunities in the coming months for locals to get involved in the creation of this game, so be sure to follow us on Twitter or Facebook to stay in the know.”

MONOPOLY first hit the shelves in 1935 — since then it has been played by more than 1 billion people. Today, it is played in 114 countries and enjoyed in over 47 different languages.
