Why we started

We’re committed to raising the profile of innovation in Queensland. We know how hard it is to be an entrepreneur and how challenging it can be to navigate all the information out there.

We wanted to provide a one-stop shop for innovation in Queensland to make the innovation journey easier… simpler… seamless.

We also know that during this unprecedented time, connecting virtually has become more important than ever.

Our ecosystem is hungry for a central place to connect, grow and showcase our successes.

The QiHub is that place and it will continue to evolve over time – with new tools, resources and functionality.
