Perth Landing Pad is designed to attract high-growth startups and scaleup ventures from Asia and beyond, providing them with a cohort based program, access to events, mentoring, local business connections, coworking and community, as well as guidance for obtaining long-term residency.
This project will build a strong profile for the State and signal its support for innovation and preparedness for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Landing Pads throughout the world are designed to connect people, support collaboration, attract investors and ultimately strengthen the startup community – which is essential for creating a pipeline of future job-creating businesses and sustainable, high-value jobs here in WA.
“Perth Landing Pad is an extension to the services we’ve offered at Spacecubed for more than ten years.For us, the benefits are two pronged, attracting investment and nurturing skills from Asia to create global WA-based businesses and providing Australian businesses a pathway into Asian markets.”
“WA shares the GMT+8 timezone with over 24% of the world’s population. This makes it the perfect base for Australian businesses to access these fast-growing global markets. It is also a competitive advantage for WA-based startups and helps foster collaboration between Australian startup founders and our neighbours to the North.” Spacecubed General Manager, Chandra Sundareswaran shared.
By working alongside local partners, including The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation and City of Perth, Spacecubed is able to promote the city’s sustainable growth and build Perth's global reputation and brand. This will be achieved by attracting international investments, businesses, talents and visitors. It will also build the foundations for program sustainability, expand networks, diversify WA economy and create overall project success.
“Perth Landing Pad is an exciting opportunity for WA to attract new talent, establish new companies, and create local jobs that will diversify our economy. The McGowan Government is committed to supporting collaboration, attracting investors, and strengthening our start-up community.” Innovation and ICT Minister Stephen Dawson shared.
“The City of Perth is proud to see the launch of Perth Landing Pad, which will see more and more business choosing to be based here in the City. Our unique location makes Perth Australia’s gateway to Asian businesses and investments. Now more than ever, it’s clear the City is open for business.”City of Perth Lord Mayor, Basil Zempilas shared.
