York Butter Factory

The Coworking Space for Melbourne's Technology Entrepreneurs



About Us

The York Butter Factory is the co-working space for Melbourne's high-potential early-stage technology entrepreneurs.


Established in 2011 inside an 1850s heritage-listed space, York Butter Factory is home to startups with bold and global ambitions to change the world.


Named after the original 1855 building, the York Butter Factory is situated on King Street at the base of the Rialto.



This brilliant bluestone warehouse is the ultimate juxtaposition of old and new, building tech startups out of one Melbourne’s oldest structures. The 577sqm space is across two floors and has an open plan coworking space, informal collaborative area, meeting rooms, an industrial fridge and room for up to 60 entrepreneurs.


Opening its doors in October 2011, it has established itself at the center of a rapidly growing startup ecosystem in Melbourne. York Butter Factory was co-founded by the partners of Adventure Capital, who run their VC fund out of the space.



YBF already hosts over 50 startups largely in the Consumer Internet space. Opportunities to access funding is through its owners’ tech-focused VC fund as well as seed funding provided directly to deserving startups and via the Aurelius Digital angel investment network.


There is a culture of collaboration, resource sharing and tough love. Tenants are curated with a view to fill the space with high-potential technology startups with a global ambition.
