‘Smart state’ needs wider focus – By Jason Clout
As the Queensland Government prepares itself for the upcoming election on Saturday, chief executive of the Innovation Centre Sunshine Coast, Colin Graham, said government support needed to go out to the regional areas of Queensland and not just Brisbane. The Liberal National small business spokesman, Rob Messenger, said increasing small business in regional areas was a key goal. The centre, a subsidiary of the Sunshine Coast University, is funded through the support of the state government and the university. Mr Graham said ‘the centre has developed strengths in looking after IT and clean technology businesses but we are also seeking to build health and creative businesses.’ One of the creative companies in the centre is game developer Big Ant Studios.
