STEP UP YOUR STARTUP
Startups can take all forms in our industries, from small tourism suppliers through to life-changing travel apps.
Whilst passion and a desire to put smiles on faces are in plentiful supply, running a business and making it successful requires expertise and advice that can be hard to track down.
TTIH is launching an ecosystem for travel and tourism startups in Australia. We'll offer workshops, pitch nights, introductions to industry figures, discounted pricing from suppliers and links to investment and mentoring, whilst offering special terms for startups using our facilities as a permanent or even virtual office using our address. And it will be BS-free and harness the best support that the industry has to offer.
"When we first started Jayride.com (ASX:JAY), I didn't even know what a startup was. I didn't know lean practice, I didn't know agile, I didn't know how to raise capital, how to value a company, how to build a team, how to retain them and motivate them and make them shareholders and empower them to do amazing things.
I didn't even know that I didn't know these things – the startup world was a huge and enormous opportunity and I was absolutely blind to it.
Since starting Jayride in 2012 people often ask me what was the best decision I made. The hands-down most-important best decision we made when starting the company was to move to a coworking space full of likeminded entrepreneurs, and it was in a coworking space where we learned everything we know today. We would not be a successful ASX-listed company today if not for coworking."
