Launchpad: fostering innovation and modern approaches for local businesses

Have you heard of Launchpad?

Launchpad aims to foster innovation and assist existing businesses to upskill in modern approaches to take advantage of new market opportunities and grow their businesses.

In short, it’s all about growing innovation and increasing both the capability and capacity of businesses in the Pilbara.

Facilitated by the team at Plus Eight, Launchpad will be running online workshops with participants in Onslow, Karratha, Port Hedland and Newman. These workshops are perfect for those looking to make the entrepreneurial leap and rapidly develop the capabilities needed to build a successful business.

Over the course of the series of workshops, participants will be challenged by leading start-up mentors and be given the support to test, develop and validate their idea as well as grow new skills to become a great founder. Following the workshops, participants will be invited to attend a Pitch Night, where start-ups and entrepreneurs can pitch their ideas to an audience of local stakeholders, community, industry and government.
