BVP is on the verge of developing an export quail industry with an Asian market in sight and is creating its own startup precinct in the Brisbane Valley.

QUT is putting increased focus on regional innovation and entrepreneurship. It was central to the MIT Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp hosted at the university in February.
This forum will be the opportunity to learn more, then do more and meet with others of shared interest in technology, entrepreneurship and the future of work.
