STARTUP HUB OPENS IN BRISBANE
Written on the 21 October 2016
BRISBANE'S new $5 million co-working space for 200 startups, The Capital, has opened on the Queen Street Mall.
"Brisbane has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and has a track record of producing ground-breaking startups with world-changing ideas," Hurps says.
"Fishburners is a not-for-profit focused on inspiring new startups, attracting and validating existing startups and connecting them with support from other parts of the ecosystem."
The workspace is partly funded by the Brisbane City Council, as outlined in its Brisbane 2022 New World City Action Plan.
"Being part of The Capital has allowed us to become recognised as a leader in innovation, culture, creativity and entrepreneurship. We are proud that we are now known as Brisbane's leading curator of innovation communities."
"Innovation is an industry that is critical to our future economic growth and will continue to be a major stimulant of job creation for our city.
"The Capital will continue Brisbane's momentum as a centre for innovation in the Asia Pacific region and ensure the city continues to thrive in this rapidly globalising economy."
