Coast one of the best places for technology businesses
We are one of the best places in Australia for technology businesses to grow and prosper. The Sunshine Coast was one of three finalists for the Innovative Regions Award at the Australian Technologies Competition Awards Gala event in Sydney.
While the top prize was taken out by Greater Adelaide (SA), Mark Mayor Jamieson said the Sunshine Coast could be extremely proud of its top three placing.
“This award recognises Australia’s leading regions for small and medium enterprise emerging technologies companies,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“For a region like the Sunshine Coast with our population of around 300,000 to sit just behind Greater Adelaide that has a population of nearly 1.3million people is wonderful recognition that we’re building on our enviable lifestyle to also create an environment where the industries of the future can thrive.
“It’s also worth remembering that since we nominated for this award in March, we’ve announced even more initiatives that support the business and technology sector like the Undersea Cable Project, as well as Digital Sunshine Coast and a new schedule of Qantas business flights in and out of the Sunshine Coast.
