Following the launch of Hobart’s Enterprize innovation hub last week, the Tasmanian Government has today officially launched the Launceston hub, a space looking to help boost and grow the city’s startup community.
Tasmania will soon be home to two new entrepreneurship and incubation hubs, with organisations including the University of Tasmania, TasTAFE, and Startup Tasmania coming together to launch a space at Macquarie House in Launceston, and the former Mercury newspaper building in Hobart.
Biteable, a Hobart-based startup that has developed an online tool allowing users to create professional promo videos in minutes, has raised $1.1 million in seed funding from Australian investors including Tank Stream Ventures and BridgeLane Capital.
Businesses can spend weeks creating animated videos for their homepage – or months if they don’t have an in-house designer. Hobart-based startup Biteable is not only slicing down that time to less than 10 minutes, but also making the process as simple as it is to create graphics on Canva and as cheap as creating professional videos can get.
