Boat International Oceans Talks 2019
Over 3 nights as part of XR:WA, Perth’s own secret co-working space, Studio Startup, plays host to beer and board games!
Curated by Sofie Mather,, this is fantastic opportunity to meet with table top games designers and makers and experience some of their wares – while also enjoying a beverage or two from the bar!
We’ll also be having some multiplayer computer games for you to explore plus perhaps the occasional talk and other distractions.
Studio Startup is a unique subterranean space perfect in providing a platform for new and possibly subversive ideas which is precisely what we’re planning on doing. Entry is free and there’s a bar.
In what is essentially a table-top Open Mic, Immersive After Dark is a unique opportunity to explore both the space and the ideas. Games, stories, forms, ideas, testing and talking, it’s all on the table.

$485,000 Federal grant awarded for AgriStart to help 50 regional start-ups take on the world. AgriStart was the only WA business awarded funding in the latest round of the Federal Government’s $23 million Incubator Support initiative.
AgriStart’s CONNECT: Regional Innovation Hubs will enhance regional innovation in three high-growth areas of Western Australia through training and the fostering of connections to start-up capital investment markets.
Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews congratulated the six successful applicants nationally.
“Incubators like these and the start-ups they support play a critical role across the economy in creating high-value jobs and increasing productivity by bringing new products and services to market,” Minister Andrews said.
The three regional areas supported by the AgriStart grant will be the Central Wheatbelt (Northam Hub), Great Southern (Albany Hub) and South-West (Busselton Hub).
AgriStart was founded and is led by agricultural researcher Dr Natasha Ayers and global entrepreneur Peter Rossdeutscher, is a successful consulting company that designed and delivered WA’s first Agtech Accelerator programs and has delivered innovation training in towns across the state.
AgriStart’s Managing Director Dr Ayers is from a wheatbelt farm in Cunderdin, and will be based in the South-West Regional Hub.
Dr Ayers commented “This funding is a great opportunity to expand the geographical reach of our services, building capability and capital for small business growth across Western Australia. AgriStart CONNECT Regional Innovation Hubs will work with local innovators to connect entrepreneurs in rural areas to the Perth innovation networks and global markets.”
Mr Rossdeutscher added “Regional Australia is blessed with entrepreneurial endeavour so it is wonderful to see Federal support behind AgriStart’s regional growth initiative. This initiative will create jobs and economic growth across the state by fostering startup success in the three hubs.”
The grant of $485,000 will provide face-to-face training, expert mentoring, online support and networking opportunities for up to 50 small businesses or start-ups in regional 50 over the next 2 years.

Ads on Wheels was developed by Perth-based Apps People using smart technology to understand when the driver is in the car and where the vehicle has been driven.
The founders, Michael Palmer and Daniel Schoonderwoerd of Ads on Wheels are over the moon with the driveway success that they have created. They have a carpark full of drivers waiting to get on board the platform and a tidy royal driveway of advertisers signing up.
Ads on Wheels is an exciting new concept for advertising, that creates a new way for brands to cut through advertising clutter with a unique way to target geographical locations, targeted demographics and internal word of mouth.
The business model can benefit both drivers and advertisers. Drivers can use their cars to advertise a business and advertisers can get more exposure for their band. All of this is accomplished by the drivers having back window sticker advertisements.
On 1st November Liberty Flexible Workspaces took over the management of Amberley Business Centre in the iconic IBM Building at 1060 Hay Street in West Perth to increase their footprint in Perth.
The previous management of Andrew and Di Hassell had experienced both the best and the very worst of WA’s economic cycle over the last 4-5 years and made a smart strategic decision for the business going forward.
Andrew Hassell commented, “We decided that as a standalone operation we ran the risk of getting left behind and not providing our clients with the service they need. So, we have engaged Liberty Flexible Workspaces to manage the business centre on our behalf. Over the last 8 years they have earned an unquestionable reputation for excellence in facilities management and customer service. This new management will also bring improvements to the client experience, service offerings and business efficiencies, as well as access to the facilities and services at the expansive Liberty portfolio of workspaces.”
Liberty are a Perth owned operator of flexible workspace with five existing locations across the metro area.
Liberty’s Founder & CEO, Jamie Vine, “We’re an ambitious organisation that has shared those tough times and have begun to come through because of our dedication to customer service and flexible arrangements. This new location shows this growth continuing. We are delighted to support Andrew and Di with their business strategy. Our operations and management processes provide landlords and existing workspace operators with a lot of value and opportunity.”
