Unearthed is a partnership of local groups keen to understand the Great South Coast start up ecosystem. We want to find the innovators and doers and hear about the ideas brewing in our region, so we can help bring them to life. Inspired by big seas, crisp air and open space, we help locals bring their fresh ideas to life. Serious business skills for seriously good businesses. From our cool communities, to the world.

“Entrepreneurialism absolutely exists in regional areas,” says Runway CEO, Peter Dostis, photographed above right. “Regional centres are full of smart, creative, resourceful people with unique challenges and fresh perspectives. If you have an idea, now is the time to step up.”

“We want to bring together our thinkers, creatives and doers. We know they’re out there!” says Helen Sheedy from the Unearthed team. “Feeding off like-minded people is one of the biggest motivators when you’re starting something new. Unearthed is about uncovering this potential and giving locals the skills they need to take their ideas to the next level.”
