The Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur “Adopt-a-Chief” program is an opportunity for Queensland based startups to leverage the practical knowledge and experience of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur. The successful startup will have the opportunity to spend the day with The Chief to brainstorm ideas, solve challenges, ask specific questions and receive practical advice.
The first three rounds of the Adopt-a-Chief were hugely successful with She Maps, Sobah and Album Registry as the first startups in the program to benefit from dedicated time with Queensland Chief Entrepreneur, Leanne Kemp. Find out more about the businesses below.
