New scholarship spurs on spatial entrepreneurs

By on 21 June, 2016


Aspiring entrepreneurs with an exciting idea relating to location information are invited to apply for a fully funded Landgate scholarship to attend the Curtin Growth Ignition program.

The scholarship is being offered through SPUR powered by Landgate, the recently launched location and innovation hub that promotes collaboration, stimulation and acceleration of new ideas.

An information session on the SPUR scholarship will be held this Thursday 23 June 2016 at Bloom, St Catherine’s College, University of Western Australia.

the Curtin Growth Ignition program is an intensive five-and-a-half day education program run by Curtin University’s Business School from 4-9 September 2016 that enables participants to trial and prepare their business ideas for the commercial environment.

Landgate’s scholarship is open to one Western Australian resident with a unique business idea or innovation that relies on location data.

Landgate Chief Executive Mike Bradford said SPUR would like to hear from applicants who have the passion and ambition to take their ideas forward.

“SPUR is particularly interested in applications from entrepreneurs and start-ups keen to use the power of location information to solve community problems and come up with innovative business ideas,” Mr Bradford said.

Applications for the Landgate scholarship close on 29 July 2016.
