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.
