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 www.digitalbrisbane.com

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.

Cheers

Colin Kinner
