Cohort Innovation Space eagerly anticipates the arrival of some of the foremost eco brands hailing from Melbourne, Sunshine Coast, and Byron Bay. This highly anticipated gathering is part of the 2023 Gold Coast Business Week, featuring the visionary founders of Great Wrap, Pleasant State, and Zero Co.

Under the overarching theme of ‘sustainability‘ for this year’s edition, the City of Gold Coast presents an extensive week-long program of business events. From in-depth discussions on carbon neutrality metrics to comprehensive explorations of envirotech and manufacturing, Cohort Innovation Space will deliver an evening event called Champions of Change on the 12th of October.

Structured in a dynamic panel-style format, the founders of Great Wrap, Jordy Kay and Julia Kay will be joined by the co-founder of Pleasant State, Sian Murray and Mike Smith the founder of Zero Co. Attendees will have the privilege of hearing their journey into startup land, their key learnings and what future endeavours are to come.

From Great Wrap’s ingenious approach to reducing plastic waste, to Pleasant State’s pioneering ‘just-add-water’ cleaning  products, and Zero Co’s innovative packaging solutions, these 3 companies stand as exemplary models of how business success and environmental conscientiousness go hand-in-hand.

Tickets for this unmissable event are now available, but given last year’s sell-out success, interested parties are encouraged to secure their spots early!
