Some thoughts from members and participants in our events and programs: “Working in a co-working space made a huge difference to a funding application I submitted for a social innovation project as I was able to quickly consult with, and pull together a team of different specialties. These included service model design and research, through to web technology expertise.” Elizabeth Mackay - ‘Closing the Gap’ project proponent and Million Trees project officer “The biggest benefit for my business is in the supportive people I meet who think outside the square and want to help me (with no other motive than that they want to help me). It’s an empowering feeling!” Lisa Greeve - Greeve and Associates, Ethical Investment Adviser “There are a lot of things that make it tough to be a tech start up in Geraldton, like isolation. But Pollinators has been a great starting point to meet people and draw inspiration to execute ideas.” Jason Smith - Founder of EverythingGeraldton “People stood up at the end our pitch to say how good the idea was, how strong the research supporting us – and, added to all the support from Pollinators, co-participants in Catalyst and Andrew himself, this is encouragement of no small order. So, braver, better connected and soon to be cashed-up, the Imagination Games is on its way.” Jo Jackson King - Author, and now co-founder of Imagination Games “Pollinators...is an extremely innovative and quite rapidly growing group of social entrepreneurs based in Geraldton. They are helping catalyse some of the really interesting things that are going on up there.” Senator Scott Ludlam - speaking in Parliament after his visit to Geraldton “If it wasn’t for Pollinators, I don’t think I would be in Geraldton” Stephanie Burro - designer, youth gallery proponent, Catalyst graduate WEBSITE pollinators.org.au EMAIL buzz@pollinators.org.au PHONE (08) 9965 5371 ADDRESS CityHive at Swansea House 184 Marine Tce Geraldton, WA, 6530
