SCRIPT is a collaboration of local entrepreneurs, businesses, government stakeholders and community members dedicated to growing innovation and business capacity within the Sunshine Coast region. The Sunshine Coast has a strong Innovation Ecosystem and this funding allows for greater networking and enables more entrepreneurial activity, resulting in more jobs and a boosted economy.
The Sunshine Coast is fortunate to have an established and active Innovation Ecosystem and SCRIPT works to increase these connections and relationships.
The region’s innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem has increased by 48% between 2016-2019, with the number of organisations, programs, events and initiatives growing from 62 to 92 across the Sunshine Coast and Noosa local government areas.
This culture has been encouraged and supported by Sunshine Coast Council, Noosa Council and Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast along with their project partners (collectively known as SCRIPT) who together have laid the groundwork, through a myriad of platforms, courses and programs, over many years to ensure local businesses had the tools to grow and scale up.
To bring about these outcomes, activities and resources are aligned to the following key priority areas: Smart Cities, Food and Agribusiness, Health and Wellbeing, Sustainability and Environment and Creative Industries.
