Haymarket HQ is a not-for-profit, supported by the State government (Jobs for NSW) and founded by Brad Chan.
The majority of our startups are active globally, but recognise Asia as an important region for their business now and/or in the future.
Asia is a logical region for Australian businesses to focus on. The majority of all future economic growth will come from Asia and Australian businesses are well-placed to capitalise on its burgeoning middle class. Asia has been Australia’s largest trading partner for a long time, but will become even more important in the near-future:
“I often talk to startups about their global ambitions and there is always a strong focus on the US market, understandable given it has been a well-worn path for many Australian startups. However, I see both the size and the growth potential of markets in Asia and the opportunities for Australia startups to capitalise on this as a prospect not to be ignored.“ – Brad Chan, Founder of Haymarket HQ
Our role is to raise more awareness about the opportunities and developments in Asia and support entrepreneurs to capitalise on those opportunities. This can mean a range of different things:
We are particularly strong in supporting companies expand into China and have a strong network of organisations, local government partners and successful entrepreneurs that are willing to support our members.
