Microsoft Innovation Centre

Level 28, 400 George Street Brisbane

This EXPRESSWAY™ Network connects commercially focused, like-minded Queensland people, with the objective of creating a Queensland wide innovation network that encompasses all industry sectors, regions and stages of business. EXPRESSWAY™ offers opportunities for you to make connections, share ideas, form collaborations and find out about services available to you from government and business support agencies.

This month’s EXPRESSWAY™ topic is:

How do I attract the right kind of investors to kick off or grow the business?



Keynote Speaker

Simon Horne
Moreton Ventures

Last month Simon gave his amazing case study on being an entrepreneur with all the high and lows that could mean!  This month we’ve brought Simon back again to give the keynote. This time as a member of the Brisbane Angels and an active angel investor. Simon is engaged in preparing promising local startup business for growth and investment and is involved in some very special initiatives to help you grow your business though investment right here in Brisbane and surrounds! 

Simon has an MBA (New Venture Management) as well as a STEM degree (Mechatronic Engineering) and was a pioneer in VoIP and Video Conferencing where he helped maintain a number of Open Source projects which are still in use around the world.


Case Study

Jake Dimarco
Spare Workspace

Jake will give his case study as a recent local Angel funded startup. Jake’s business is a marketplace where businesses can book affordable on-demand workspace by the hour, day or month from businesses that have under-utilised workspace.  Hear Jake give his story of setting up, overcoming startup challenges, attracting investment, and more!
