My current mission is to continue to grow the vibrant Startup Ecosystem across the Darling Downs / Maranoa and SW Queensland regions with the Toowoomba Startup Group & Startup Toowoomba Pty. Ltd. We have been building an Entrepreneurial Community to support the budding entrepreneurs that live across Southern and Western Queensland. Startup Toowoomba has partnered with USQ & QRRRWN to deliver the WiRE Program.
Startup Toowoomba is also working with companies, NGO's, NFP's and other groups with the facilitation of events and activities to drive innovation and lean startups.

We're looking for Entrepreneurs who want to network and grow the entrepreneurial community through collaboration with like minded individuals.
We are also developing strong relationships with Local & State Government around our initiatives and importantly we are speaking to local businesses and people that have been there already about assisting and mentoring new Startups on the Darling Downs.
Anchor Institutions are important engines of innovation in entrepreneurial ecosystems. If you are at USQ or TAFE South West and want to grow entrepreneurial activities in your institutions then call us.
