Providing local startups and entrepreneurs with resources, networks and mentors
Griffith University, along with Logan City Council and Redland City Council, are the lead partners in the Queensland State Government's Advancing Regional Innovation Program which aims to turn our regions into hubs for innovation and enterprise.
The $1 million matched funding program will enable local entrepreneurs, business leaders and key industries to collaborate closely and with government to harness innovation and unlock business potential, strengthen existing industries and prepare regional Queenslanders for jobs of the future.
The establishment of innovation spaces across the region, including the Griffith University Logan campus, will bring together students, community and industry partners and provide local startups and entrepreneurs with resources, networks and mentors.
Griffith University Pro Vice Chancellor and Head of Logan campus Linda O’Brien said the project was a great opportunity for the region. 'We know success comes from challenging the norm, from adapting and innovating, from creating new trends and pioneering solutions. “I am absolutely delighted to be working with such great partners to advance Queensland by harnessing innovation to diversify the economy and create jobs.'
Myriad Digital and Innovation Festival
In May 2018 Griffith University showcased community support and engagement as a partner of the Advancing Regional Innovation program at this month’s Myriad Festival.
Each year the program highlights the game-changing work being done by a group of innovative regional start-ups and entrepreneurs.
