Supporting our future

Small Business


The Collaborate Program is a startup competition investing into entrepreneurs with great ideas for how technology and digital innovation can solve SmallBusiness Challenges.

Businesses in Queensland are crying out for new products — apps, software and online tools — that will make running a business easier.

Collaborate #SmallBusiness Challenge is an initiative of CCIQ, Suncorp and BlueChilli where we want you to solve the problems of businesses and build your business in return.

This Brisbane based program is designed to create high growth, scalable startups that solve real problems for small to medium businesses.
