It will empower companies to secure new deals, build revenue and scale the business in national and international markets.
Expressions of interest are invited from those working on digital solutions to improve and transform the health sector. This could include health-based smart devices, wearables and technology, mental health apps, e-treatment, technological improvements to health industry processes and more.

Innovation Minister Stirling Hinchliffe says, “SunRamp’s record for success in the United States is a terrific boost for innovation on the Sunshine Coast.”
Mayor Mark Jamieson says the Sunshine Coast-based program would leverage the Sunshine Coast International Broadband Network and attract, accelerate, and grow Queensland businesses to provide digital and technological solutions to improve health and wellbeing outcomes and deliver economic value for our region.
“At a time when we are encouraging opportunities to support the resurgence of our local economy, we are very pleased to see this program delivered in our region and provide opportunities for our local businesses,” Mayor Jamieson says.
“It is a great fit for the Sunshine Coast.”
The first program will run from June 8 until August 31 and include a series of six specialist workshops, one-on-one coaching and networking opportunities.
