Thank you for your support


My company participated in the Gold Coast Innovation Hub’s Accelerator program in 2020 and it is the best thing I have ever done for my business. I have 20 years commercial experience and can say the tailored support from the facilitators was second to none and the direct engagement with 42 Ventures resulted in over $1 Million of investment into the business.
