Innov8ors is Gladstone Region’s first Acceleration Program supporting the development of tech startups through collaborative partnerships, jobs creation and skills attraction to strengthen Gladstone Region’s Innovation Ecosystem.

Innov8ors will provide one to one mentoring through end-to-end product planning, designing, validation, testing and launching via a 24-Week modules Program which includes weekly Bootcamp, one to one mentoring, and an introduction to various sources of funding.

Innov8ors is possible due to a partnership between Here for Gladstone (the combined community investment of Rio Tinto Yarwun, Boyne Smelters Limited and Queensland Alumina Limited) and Queensland Government (through its Advance Queensland).

 Innov8ors will have five (5) cohorts over between 1st July 2020 and 30th June 2023 including:
