Brisbane will soon be home to a new $5 million innovation hub known as ‘The Capital’, located in the heart of the city’s CBD in order to inspire “creative collisions” with industry and government. Lord Mayor Graham Quirk announced that the hub, the need for which was outlined as an economic priority in the Brisbane 2022 New World City Action Plan in May, would “kick-start a ‘Clever Business District’ for Brisbane by immersing startups into the city’s corporate business precinct.”
