Redland and Logan innovators to pitch to global investors at Myriad

Starting this month, Redland and Logan entrepreneurs join the Myriad Festival, showcasing products and pitching to global investors.

Ten innovators join a 127-strong Queensland delegation at Brisbane Powerhouse from March 29 to 31. Capalaba MP Don Brown listed Redlands delegates, including William Pagnon of Freelance Robotics.

Brown said, “Supporting businesses like Freelance Robotics allows local businesses to build invaluable contacts with other entrepreneurs and with national and global investors.”

Leeanne Enoch, the Small Business Minister, emphasized that regional entrepreneurs have remarkable products. She noted their high growth potential and their capacity to generate employment opportunities for Queenslanders.

Participating in Myriad provides these entrepreneurs with a platform to showcase regional innovation. Their track record in developing groundbreaking products and transformative business services has demonstrated their potential. Ms. Enoch highlighted that this initiative aligns with the government’s strategy to diversify regional economies post-mining boom.

The government has substantially increased its support, almost tripling the number of benefiting entrepreneurs. As part of this support, regional delegates receive event tickets, travel subsidies, and a booth at Myriad to present ideas to industry leaders.
