Australian Spatial Analytics

Who are we?
This blended finance partnership is monumental for ASA and the work-integrated social enterprise sector. It shows that with some tailored support, social enterprises like ASA can mature past the grant cycle and create systemic impact over the long term. The capital will allow ASA to scale its impact across the nation. It will facilitate the employment of more than 100 young autistic and neurodiverse adults across five locations and support alternative career pathways into industries with critical skills shortages. ASA is proud to be a case study for this innovative approach.

Australian Spatial Analytics
Australian Spatial Analytics (ASA) is one of Australia’s largest and fastest-growing work-integrated social enterprises. Since 2020, ASA has helped create geospatial and digital engineering careers for more than 150 young neurodivergent adults. Their work helps to solve Australia’s skills shortages and data sovereignty concerns while harnessing an untapped source of highly talented and motivated people who perform essential work that otherwise occurs offshore. ASA also creates enduring social impact for young neurodivergent adults who face a 34% unemployment rate by providing stable and meaningful work— improving their confidence, resilience and well-being.
