Ideas Place Launch

Thu 07 Feb 5:30 pm

Everyone has at least one good idea for a new invention or business and the difficult part is recognising its potential and taking the first steps to bring it to life

The Ideas Place was launched at 5.30pm on Thursday 7th February, at the new Warrnambool Motor Museum in the Fletcher Jones Factory. It was an exciting opportunity to hear about the legacy of Fletcher Jones from one of the founders of Quicksilver, Simon Buttonshaw.

What’s your bold business idea?

We know you’ve got one and we think it could be great.
The Ideas Place is all about exploring, fostering and developing business ideas just like yours.
