Rocket firing upward at speed

coLab officially lifts off!

And we’re off! We were excited to officially open The coLab Growth Hub on Friday 26 March. The City of Logan’s new launch pad for fast-growing businesses ready to access global networks and markets is ready to go!

It is fantastic to see the coLab’s 3 inaugural Portfolio Companies together and sharing their work with rockets, drones and holographic surgery with the attendees. Those attendees – including City of Logan’s Mayor and Deputy Mayor, state Ministers, and federal and state MPs – also had the chance to tour the premises and share in the excitement of the coLab. They also met the coLab entrepreneurs-in-residence, mentors and coLab Advisory Board members.

Looking ahead from here, the focus will be developing the operational rollout, as well as pairing the Portfolio Companies with the Entrepreneurs in Residence who can best meet their needs and work with them most effectively.

Register your interest!

Are you a fast-scaling business interested in global connections and expanding your venture in the City of Logan?
The coLab Growth Hub may be the place for you.

It’s Logan’s first coLab, and it’s an initiative of Logan City Council. Partners include Logan-based global company, Go1, and the Los Angeles-based Network for Global Innovation.

The coLab Growth Hub is now accepting expressions of interest for its first intake of resident ventures (‘Portfolio Companies’). Council is looking for 4 to 5 scaling ventures with 1 to 3 staff members to become foundation Portfolio Companies, taking up an initial 12-month residency.

To be eligible, they will need to:

  • be in a strong financial position, with established investment capital
  • have a demonstrated potential for growth and maturity
  • align with coLab objectives as they relate to economic growth in the City of Logan.

The coLab is based at Go1’s global headquarters in Underwood.

The coLab Growth Hub is not a co-working space. It features access to highly qualified entrepreneurs-in-residence and tailored development programs focused on founder resident firms.

It’s an environment where high-growth ventures can grow with like-minded companies in a collaborative environment designed to support individual companies and their employees.

Potential Portfolio Companies will be assessed against set criteria, with successful ventures invited to take up a residency with the coLab.
