Chance to ex­plore new global mar­ket­places

Central and North Rural Weekly - - NEWS -

THE Queens­land Govern­ment is of­fer­ing women who have founded start-ups in re­gional Queens­land the op­por­tu­nity to travel to Lon­don to ex­pe­ri­ence one of the world’s in­no­va­tion hotspots.

Min­is­ter for In­no­va­tion, Sci­ence and the Dig­i­tal Econ­omy Leeanne Enoch opened ap­pli­ca­tions for four re­gion­ally-based women to par­tic­i­pate in the Startup Cat­a­lyst Fe­male Founders Mis­sion to Lon­don from Novem­ber 26 to De­cem­ber 2, 2017.

Ms Enoch said the women will join a del­e­ga­tion of Queens­land founders, in­vestors, and cor­po­rate and pol­icy de­ci­sion-mak­ers.

“It will al­low our en­trepreneurs to im­merse them­selves in an en­vi­ron­ment where scal­ing an idea to a global mar­ket­place hap­pens every day,” Ms Enoch said.

“We are look­ing for re­gional fe­male founders who are seek­ing to grow their in­ter­na­tional con­nec­tions, learn from other fe­male lead­ers from the Aus­tralian and Lon­don start-up com­mu­ni­ties, and who want to un­der­stand the UK mar­ket.”

The four suc­cess­ful re­gional par­tic­i­pants will each re­ceive $5500 sup­port from Ad­vance Queens­land to fund the Startup Cat­a­lyst mis­sion fee.
