4 April 2016 Start Up and Launch

​Is your Startup looking to take that next big leap forward? This year the Telstra Business Centre Coffs Harbour Digital Innovation Challenge is going bigger and bolder!


The Live Pitch for the Challenge is set for June 18, the event where the finalists get to battle out in front of judges and an open audience for a massive prize package of over $150,000. Other local entrepreneurs who aren’t in the Challenge or who have already launched also have the opportunity this year to showcase their business in Startup Alley.


Being part of Startup Alley allows local entrepreneurs an opportunity to launch their business, gain the attention of a co-founder, gain customer insights, test their ideas and become the next local success story. Startups can be at any stage of development to participate, be it MVP, product launch or ready to scale.
In addition to networking in the Alley, participants will get to take in the morning masterclass sessions and hear some inspiring speakers, as well as watching the finalists competing in the Digital Innovation Challenge Live Pitch in the afternoon.


“Startup Alley is a great way to get your company in front of the local business professional services, investors, innovators and members of the press in attendance at the Challenge Day — who can potentially help take your company to the next level,” said Stephen Saunders, Section Leader, Industry and Destination Development.
Digital Innovation Challenge Day takes place on Saturday June 18, at the C.ex Club Coffs Harbour.


Space is limited in Startup Alley so if you want to be considered please contact Kristina Cooke on kristina.cooke@chcc.nsw.edu.au 02 6648 4089 or find more information on the website.
