Darren Power, Mayor Logan City Council:

We’re at Go1 in Underwood and today is the launch of the coLab. coLab is an innovation hub, it’s like an incubator that sets off companies that are just starting out. Go1 are a very successful international company and it’s great to create this partnership with them to try and get other companies like Go1 to be as successful.

( Applause )

We’re a proudly Logan founded and headquartered company based right here in Underwood. What is it that we do? It’s really quite simple. Think of us as a Spotify or Netflix for Workplace learning.

We help millions of people across thousands of companies across the planet upskill and train their staff. We’ve grown to a team of over 200 people globally across 10 offices around the world. What does the coLab mean to us? It’s our way to be able to support companies that are coming up through the Logan innovation eco-system to be able to grow and to be able to prosper as well. As we grow, so will the rest of the eco-system and we want to make sure that we are a part of it, and we’re a big supporter of it.

Having this coLab here, it’s such a wonderful opportunity. It means jobs, well-paying jobs that allow people to stay in their community, to not have to go away. Really amazing to see the variety of companies involved in coLab. Everything from subspace rockets, drones and medical engineering.

Akunah is one of the founding start-ups of the coLab. I think this is really important for start-ups like us to give us all the networks locally and globally to be able to reach the next milestone.
