Launceston now has a Beach, Launceston Silicon Beach.
10th Sept 2016 saw the birth of Australia's newest Silicon Beach community - in Launceston, Tasmania.
We will work with Cowork Launceston and Startup Tasmania to promote Tasmania as one of the best places in the world to run a startup. The state offers super-fast NBN, clean air, healthy lifestyle, mild weather and low-cost housing to name a few of the attractions. Silicon Beach Radio is backed by the support of EATT Magazine podcast.
EATT Magazine has recently released a series of interactive videos https://eattmag.com/15-video-how-to-send-us-your-english-lesson-questions-and-answers/ where beginners in English can send English lesson questions and answers online.
With a strong focus on Food & AgriTech along with clean energy, the island state is educating the future knowledge workers and entrepreneurs. Primary school children are learning robotics and Illuminate Education (working out of Cowork Launceston) is running entrepreneurship programs for secondary students. Tasmania will make an ideal testing ground for startups wanting to test their ideas prior to launch.
We are on course to connect Melbourne, Geelong, Ballarat and the other Silicon Beaches around Australia as one network to create a truly powerful startup community - Silicon Beach Australia.
Visit Silicon Beach TV channel for more live streams from our trip - it wasn't all work ;) Keep an ear out for Cullen's interview with Athula on SB Radio (will be online soon).
Why not take a flight down to Launceston (starting at $49 from Jetstar) and have a few days coworkation at Cowork Launceston? They are on NBN with 100 Mbps down and 40 Mbps up, you’ll love the speed. Mention Silicon Beach for a special discount on coworking. We recommend Airbnb for accommodation and don't forget to check out the Cataract Gorge and take a ride on the chairlift just half an hour walk from the CBD.
