On June 20th 2012 we are kicking off our first Brisbane Bizspark Lunch. Our Bizspark Lunches will form part of the Queensland Microsoft Innovation Centre, and will be held monthly with guest speakers from the start-up community here in Queensland. These will provide an opportunity not only to hear from our guest speaker but to provide a platform for discussion and networking.

We are pleased to announce our first guest speaker for the year is Colin Kinner. Colin is Managing Director of specialist tech industry consultancy firm Spike Innovation, and also a mentor and Innovation Evangelist at River City Labs, a startup co-working space in Fortitude Valley.

Colin has a wealth of commercial expertise is the startup space, having run a successful startup incubator and coached and mentored many founders of technology-based businesses over the last fifteen years in Australia and the UK. He is widely regarded as a leader in the Brisbane startup community, and is a regular speaker and contributor to the local startup scene.

Colin is extremely well placed to understand the challenges faced by aspiring entrepreneurs, and at this lunch will give a snapshot of the support available to startups in Queensland. He will also provide some insights on the importance of a good mentor - and how and where to find one.

We hope you can join us for our first Brisbane Bizspark Lunch and even if you are not yet part of our Bizspark Program, as a start-up in Queensland we encourage you to join us.
