We wanted to take a moment to extend our heartfelt thanks for everyone that joined us at the Joondalup Innovation Challenge Morning Tea, hosted at the picturesque Joondalup Resort. The event was a resounding success, marking the launch of the 2023 Joondalup Innovation Challenge (JIC) and celebrating the triumphs of the previous year’s competition.

It was truly a privilege to witness the enthusiasm of the students from JIC 2022. A special mention goes out to the winning team, ‘Sixes and Sevens’, who graced us with their live pitch. Their innovative approach to rejuvenating the Joondalup economy through the CamPlus App was nothing short of inspiring. We’re excited to share that they will be advancing to the Joondalup Plus Eight Sprint, a six-week intensive designed to nurture Joondalup’s budding start-ups, scale-ups, and businesses poised for growth.

The Joondalup Plus Eight Sprint program is a golden opportunity for entrepreneurs to refine their skills and elevate their start-up visions. For those interested, applications are now open and will remain so until Tuesday, 18 April 2023. The program is scheduled to commence on Wednesday, 23 May 2023, with weekly sessions every Wednesday until 27 June 2023. Additionally, a complimentary virtual information session is slated for Thursday, 9 March 2023, at 12 pm. The event will be held at Redi Software’s offices.

We would like to acknowledge the invaluable contributions of our JIC mentors and it was a privilege to sponsor the event last year and again this year!

Furthermore, I’m thrilled to extend an invitation to the Morning Start-up viewing party. This event, held in collaboration with RediSoftware at our offices at Unit 1/139 Winton Rd, Joondalup, which is designed to foster the growth of start-ups. The inaugural session is set for Wednesday, 15 March 2023, at 7:30 am. It promises to be a regular gathering, fostering collaboration and innovation.
