If it takes a village to raise a child, as Hillary Clinton once said, then it surely takes a village to nurture imagination and aspiration; it takes a village to nurture an innovator.
iNQ is all about nurturing the North Queensland region’s innovators, creative makers and entrepreneurs. It consciously brings together imagination on the one hand and the idea of production on the other. It is a place – real and metaphoric – in which imagination can be fostered. It is a framework in which risks and rewards of imagining new possibilities can be shared fairly, because we know that effective and successful innovation happens when people find ways to meaningfully collaborate.

iNQ was launched in early November by the Treasurer of Queensland, Hon. Curtis Pitt. A village of supporters were there in force.
