StartupQLD is a Queensland Community not-for-profit organisation which inspires, celebrates, showcases, and supports high-growth entrepreneurship and startups across the State of Queensland, Australia.
Startups are the engines of job creation. Entrepreneurs intent on growing their businesses create the majority of new jobs, in every country and in every industry across the world. And it is entrepreneurs in information technology, transportation, logistics, clean energy, medicine, advanced manufacturing, food production, and other innovation fields who will build the new industries of the 21st century, and solve some of our toughest global challenges.
StartupQLD is an independent organisation and we do not represent any Government departments, public or private organisations or companies, or individuals.
StartupQLD operates from within River City Labs within the Queensland Startup Precinct in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, but the team maintain strong relations and involvement with local champions and startup communities and organisations right across Queensland, as well as connecting with other local champions and startup communities and organisations across Australia and around the world.
As a community-driven organisation, StartupQLD’s reach depends upon the community that we serve, so please share our stories and details of our events and likewise, we will share your stories and event details that you share with us, and we hope to hear from you soon to discuss ways to work with us to help grow your local startup community and the overall Queensland Startup ecosystem and community!
Our Mission is to “Stimulate, Support & Showcase Queensland Innovation, Technology, Entrepreneurs, Founders, Startups & Investors”!
