For a city whose backbone is built on entrepreneurship, it’s not surprising to see a growing, innovative and connected startup ecosystem on the Gold Coast.

With our vibrant innovation culture combined with rising student numbers and support of new startup businesses, the Gold Coast is carving out a niche as Australia’s startup city.

We have a strong and growing network of coworking spaces that provide a premise for startups and an opportunity to collaborate and share ideas and knowledge.

To ensure our creative minds and entrepreneurs have the opportunity to commercialise the ‘next-big-thing’, the City of Gold Coast alongside key partners have developed a range of startup resources – from incubators to events and networking groups.

Recently, StartupQLD launched an interactive and editable map of the Queensland ecosystem. The map offers a comprehensive overview of the states startups and support systems, and includes categories such as research, startups, game studios, co-working, startup support (i.e. groups, incubators, accelerators), industry groups and investors. Be a part of the Gold Coast Interactive Innovation Map and include your details.
