Myr­iad of flight ben­e­fits

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

THE Queens­land gov­ern­ment will char­ter a 747 air­craft to fly hun­dreds of Sil­i­con Val­ley in­vestors and en­trepreneurs to Bris­bane, in an ef­fort to at­tract the likes of Face­book founder Mark Zucker­berg and Tesla’s Elon Musk to a tech fes­ti­val in May.

The move is de­signed to boost the pro­file of the Myr­iad fes­ti­val, which was held for the first time this yeay, with more than 2000 at­tend­ing.

In­no­va­tion Min­is­ter Leeanne Enoch said with 360 in­vestors and en­trepreneurs on board the char­tered Qan­tas flight from San Fran­cisco to Bris­bane would bring with it bil­lions of dol­lars worth of po­ten­tial.

She said Queens­land-based en­trepreneurs would also be on board the flight, giv­ing them a pre­cious win­dow to net­work with lead­ing Sil­i­con Val­ley fig­ures.
