Letter from the CEO

Hello GC Hub Community,

It’s been 9 months since we opened the doors to our incubator and event space in Robina.  In that time we have welcomed over 70 businesses into the workspace, we’ve launched a pre-accelerator, a scale-up advisory board program, a landing pad for student entrepreneurs and have recently announced the new 42 Ventures fund that will be investing into innovative Gold Coast companies. We’ve played host to over 300 talks, workshops, meetups, tours and events seeing a massive 8000+ people pass through the space. 

But that’s enough about us – I want to find out more about you! 

We’ve been working with the team from Startup Status to build a platform that will allow us to track the entire Gold Coast innovation and digital business community.  It will allow us to see the industry sectors you are operating in, the technologies in use, it will help us to track economic growth, jobs growth and export growth, most importantly it will help us to understand business areas in which you need more support – ensuring that the programs, speakers, workshops and activities that we invest in are truly meeting the needs of the community.

Here is a link to our first community survey.  It will only take 5 minutes to complete – if you are a Gold Coast based small business, startup, scale up, investor, innovative company or an individual that has interacted with the Gold Coast Innovation Hub this is your opportunity to make your voice heard and your business visible to our partners and funders.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to shaping the next phase of our business support services based on your feedback!

Yours sincerely,

Sharon Hunneybell
