Investing in the Gympie region

People seeking to develop their business idea, or investors keen to be part of helping businesses grow and development, will benefit from the new Gympie Region Investment and Innovation Program (GRIiP).
Delivered by Gympie Regional Council in partnership with The Generator Gympie, the Gympie Chamber of Commerce and Angel Loop (Angel Investment), the program aims to establish the Gympie region’s own angel investor group to support start-ups and high-growth local businesses.
Organisers are hoping the program will:
better prepare start-ups or high-growth businesses when seeking investment in their business idea
support local investors by equipping them with the skills and tools to effectively assess investment opportunities
build confidence in the business sector and help create an environment that supports job creation and improved employment outcomes for residents.
The program will be officially launched on Wednesday, 19 February 2020 at Gunabul Homestead with a series of free presentations and information sessions. 
Individuals and businesses seeking investment in their business concept are invited to attend a presentation by Queensland Chief Entrepreneur, Leanne Kemp, at 9am. The presentation will explain the impact of involving investors and what you need to be prepared to give up to secure investment in your business. 
Individuals and businesses who love the Gympie region, want to see it prosper and are seeking to invest in new or fast-growing business ideas, are invited to come along at 11:30am and join Simon Horne from Angel Loop to discuss angel investing and hear some start-up pitches.
The launch event will be followed by three information sessions that tackle investment success for both businesses and investors, and culminates in a Gympie Region Angel Investors Pitch on Wednesday, 17 June 2020.

Mayor's Column - Wednesday, 12th February 2020 Mayor's Column - Wednesday, 12th February 2020

The old saying that ‘a week is a long time in politics’ was particularly true again at the federal level this week. Those issues aside, the Gympie region, like all others across the state, is gearing up for our local elections.  

These elections give the wider community the opportunity and democratic right to select the candidate that they wish to have a leadership role in the management of their community for the next four years.  

I would urge all residents to do their research on all candidates and get to know who they will be casting their vote for as the election date of 28 March fast approaches.  
I would also urge residents to heed another old saying; ‘actions speak louder than words’.  

Representing your constituents and the wider community as a duly elected councillor, in my opinion, is one of the greatest honours that could be bestowed upon an individual, however it is certainly not a popularity contest and nor should it be.  

Difficult decisions need to be made which will draw the ire of some while benefitting the majority.  You will be subjected to much more scrutiny and gossip than your family and friends will ever be.  
You will be required to adhere to stringent laws, policies and procedures which you may not have been required to previously.  But on the upside, you will represent your community and have a say and a role in delivering community services, projects and infrastructure for the benefit of the wider community and the region.  
Current councillors, over this term of council, should be proud of their contributions.  

I wish each and every resident who nominates to lead this community at the forth coming elections, all the very best. 

Mayor Mick Curran
