TAXI IN THE CENTRE OF NEW BRISBANE TECH HUB: HUB4101
Hub4101 is a new initiative to acknowledge, support and foster the organic development of a tech cluster in the 4101 postcode in Brisbane across the suburbs of Southbank, South Brisbane, West End and Highgate Hill.
Taxi’s is proud to be one of the founding members of Hub4101 and our content arm, Traffic Film Production, created the launch video for the initiative.
Similar to other international tech clusters Tech City UK (techcityuk.com) or Silicon Alley in NYC (http://www.alleywatch.com/), Hub4101 is a grass roots movement, and developed by Business Southbank, to grow & promote businesses and individuals in the 41010 postcode that use technology to deliver whatever it is they do – start ups, advertising, production, design, architects, web developers, broadcasters etc.
With technology at the heart of everything, Hub4101 will share knowledge on new technologies and their applications; create opportunities; recruit similar organisations to move their business and/or develop their business in the precinct; and promote the technology innovation in the area.
There’s no membership requirements as such, or sign up, just a willingness to participate.
A volunteer committee has been formed to build and drive Hub4101 and eventually set it free for the Hub4101 community to self-drive it. The committee is made up of representatives from ABC, Brisbane Marketing, Business South Bank, Griffith University, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Red Suit Advertising, Taxi & Traffic Production, State Library of Queensland and chaired by BSB board member Bruce Wolfe of Conrad Garget Riddel Architects.

Federal Minister for Communications, Malcolm Turnbull also created this video for Hub4101 really highlighting why tech clusters like this are so valuable – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Sb2pVd-Hi0. Couldn’t have put it better myself.
