Startup Apprentice launched on the Gold Coast. It’s an eight week program that teaches “the ‘Silicon Valley’ lean approach to starting a business to high-school students.”
Finally, Minister Ian Walker announced $300k in funding for the Queensland startup community. The money will be granted in chunks of up to $25k to non-profits that seek to help “build capability within the Queensland startup community”. Technically this happened more than a week ago, but since this is our first weekly news wrap, we’re including it.
