The founders of two established local start-ups were the guest speakers at the launch of the Central Coast’s digital innovation industry group on May 2.
Women on Boards co-founder and Managing Director, Ms Claire Braund, and Central Telecoms co-founder, Mr Graeme Johnston, were to be interviewed by local innovation champion, Mr David Abrahams, to formally launch Central Coast Start IT.
Mr Edgar Adams, publisher of the Central Coast Business Review, gave a history of some of the innovative start-up businesses birthed on the Central Coast.
Around 80 people from a broad group of interests and industries attended the launch at the Central Coast Leagues Club.
Mr Abrahams said Gosford was perfectly placed to be the innovation capital of the nation.
“Gosford is the perfect place for innovation,” he said.
“Gosford is an affordable place for disruptive idea makers to live,” Mr Abrahams said, “and many innovators can enjoy the full force of fibre to premise NBN, which is an incredible advantage that Gosford has,” he said.
