Where will I be based?

There are 13 Hot DesQ Hosts across Queensland to choose from. They will provide access to free co-working space, mentors, business advice, networks and other support services. They will also provide a landing service to ensure the applicants settle in quickly.

When you apply you can nominate 2 preferred Hot DesQ Hosts – and if successful you’ll be allocated to 1 of your preferred Hosts to base yourself for the duration of the program.

The Hosts span 1700 kilometres (over 1100 miles) – from tropical rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef, through to sensational surf. The Hosts also offer quite unique sectoral opportunities – including tourism, ag-tech, mining, med-tech, social enterprise and robotics.
