Coming off the back of October Business Month, November has been a whirlwind of excitement and events in the HUB as we inch closer to the end of the year!
November saw the HUB sponsor and host Darwin’s first ever TechStars Startup Weekend – and what a fantastic weekend it was! Congratulations to ALL of the teams, we can’t wait to see what happens next!
Through our relationship with Judy Hendricks and Dr Xiaoli Sang from the Australia Asia Executive Center, we have developed a preliminary connection with the Shandong Finance Group. Their interests lie in exploring co-investment opportunities between North Australia and China. They have an interest in the commercialisation of Australian innovation that can be exported into the China market.
Early discussions have begun around the facilitation of a Northern Territory Innovation Boot Camp in Shanghai in 2018, in partnership with the Austrade Landing Pad in Shanghai.
As many of you may know, the co-working lab construction has begun! We are very excited about the next chapter for the HUB and can’t wait to show it to you all when it is finished.
We invite you to come to the HUB on the 21st of December to our end of year Christmas Celebration! This will be our last opportunity for the year to come together and celebrate the year that was and to look forward to the year to come!
The HUB will be closed for the Christmas break from the 22nd of December until the 2nd of January.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
