Brisbane's Digital Strategy to boost support for startups

Hi Silicon Beachers

I thought you might be interested to see the startup support program launched today as part of Brisbane City Council's Digital Strategy. See

More details to come, but key initiatives include:

- 25 Lord Mayor’s Entrepreneurship Scholarships to enable university students and recent graduates to launch start-ups
- Visiting Entrepreneurs Program - to engage internationally experienced entrepreneurs to help us accelerate the maturation of the local start-up ecosystem
- Online survey of activity in the Brisbane start-up ecosystem
- CorderDojo program to run in BCC libraries for kids aged 7 to 17 to learn to code
- Funding support to enable delivery of a greater range and depth of start-up and entrepreneurship programs
- Explore the establishment of a seed co-investment fund to stimulate more early stage investment

You can download the Digital Strategy document here - see in particular page 22.
