Watch the success stories behind the HotDesQ program that has attracted entrepreneurs to Queensland and is growing the innovation hubs around the State.

HotDesQ is an Australian-first program to lure international and interstate startups to Queensland for at least six months to pursue their businesses and help grow the entrepreneurial sector in the state.

HotDesQ leverages off Queensland’s competitive advantages such as proximity to the Asia-Pacific region and capability in med-tech, agriculture, aviation and mining. The program has been designed to put startups across Queensland at the centre by basing the incoming startups in existing innovation hubs around Queensland.

The Hot DesQ Hosts span across Queensland, including in Townsville, Gold Coast, Ipswich, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Cairns and Toowoomba — with local startups in these locations having unrivalled opportunities and access to these cutting-edge entrepreneurs.
