Cohort Innovation Space is excited to announce a brand new series called Cohort Catapult. This program is designed to support aspiring founders, small business owners, university students and entrepreneurs on the Gold Coast.


Proudly supported by the Queensland Government through Economic Development Queensland, the 4 workshops in Cohort Catapult will be led by 5 industry experts in marketing, sales, finance and team building.


Unique from other programs delivered by Cohort Innovation Space, participants have the flexibility to choose workshops that align with their growth plans. Whether participants opt for one or attend all workshops throughout the year, there are no additional costs beyond the initial ticket purchase.


Here’s a brief overview of the five speakers conducting sessions throughout the year:

Niamh Sullivan | Founder and CEO of INFIX Creative Studio

From TEDx talks, being a TV reporter for Channel Seven, making the Forbes 30 under 30 semi-finals, and leading her own creative studio, Niamh Sullivan comprehends how intentional and direct marketing tools can expand your customer base. Join Niamh’s session in March to delve into EDM generation, leveraging technology to create keywords for business growth, deciphering analytics, and more.


Gavin Tye | Founder of Sales Market Fit

Gavin has been in sales for more than 20 years across various different industries and understands the challenges of securing Sales Market Fit. Having launched a B2B enterprise SaaS startup in Queensland that competed against global companies, Gavin understands the importance of creating a competitive advantage, no matter the size of a business. To achieve this, a proactive approach must be adopted while also utilising a data-driven mindset for winning customer sales is critical. He will share how he does this in the Cohort Catapult workshop in May.


Mitch King | Talent Acquisition at Mutinex

Mitch has been recruiting for 15 years including the past 4 years in house with early stage startups. He was the 18th employee at Linktree which grew to 300 in 2 years. Last year Mitch joined Mutinex as the 20th employee which is now approaching the 60 mark. Mitch will share the lessons learned from the mistakes he’s made and seen to make hiring less painful than it often is. He will share all this in the Cohort Catapult workshop in June.


Olivia Bamonte and Jaimie Scott | Co-Founders of Bloom Money

Olivia and Jaimie believe conversations around money are fraught, and financial literacy has become an assumed-knowledge, not an acquired one. And they get it — it’s daunting to learn something new, or ask for help when you’re running a business and running out of excuses to put yourself first. We’ve all been there and @ Bloom Money is here to help at the Cohort Catapult workshop in July
