We create innovation ecosystems in rural & regional areas and develop startup communities that open flexible coworking spaces to help people launch businesses and create jobs.
Currently working on growing the vibrant Startup Ecosystem across the Darling Downs, Maranoa and SW Queensland region with Startup Toowoomba & Canvas Coworking Inc where we have been building an Entrepreneurial Community to support the budding entrepreneurs that live across regional Queensland.
Startup Toowoomba has partnered with University of Southern Queensland (QRRRWN) to deliver the WiRE Program building capacity and support for Women wanting to Start, Grow & Scale their enterprise in rural and regional centres.
We also work with companies & NFP's on the facilitation of events to drive innovation forward.
