Startup Apprentice, The Hash and $300k for the community

We’re kicking off this new week-in-review column. If you know of something that should be covered in this column, please get in touch! Also, sign up for our weekly newsletter.

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.”

Stephen Phillips and Josephmark are at it again, launching The Hash, a lovely new way to engage with news sourced from Twitter. Horizontal is the new vertical.

Used car analytics startup CarValues.co won Startup Weekend Brisbane, and hopes to turn the market for lemons into a stream of gold.

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.
