Project of the Bundaberg Regional Council


startupBundaberg officially launched in December 2015 and is led by like-minded business and technology professionals who share the belief that innovation and technology are key elements to our region’s long-term future. The startupBundaberg group meets on a monthly basis, and from these meetings, ideas are born and inspiration is passed on from one entrepreneur to the next.

startupBundaberg Program

As a means to support startups and entrepreneurs on their journey, a number of workshops, events and one-on-one mentoring will be facilitated under startupBundaberg. The Bundaberg Business Enterprise Centre, with the support of Council, secured a $30,000 grant from the Queensland Government under the Queensland Startup Events and Activities Fund to help drive startup programs in our region.

Under this program, Colin Graham of Causeway Innovation has been engaged to deliver a series of workshops and one-on-one mentoring for local startups and entrepreneurs. Colin is the founding CEO of the Innovation Centre Sunshine Coast where he supported startup and growth of 83 businesses mainly in tech sectors, creating over 350 jobs and helping to raise $23m investment.
