Welcome to the most controversial page on this website - yes, you read the title correctly - belief systems as innovation.
Queensland punches above it's weight globally here.
Former Queensland school teacher Ken Ham is the leading figure in Creationism in the USA.
Then there is Jasmuheen (formerly known as Ellen Greve) who for a time was the leading light in Breatharianism - with a reported 100 million followers worldwide.
Ken and Jasmuheen built followings that any startup would give their eye teeth for. Talk about scaling up!
There was also William Lane - a prominent Queensland Labour official who started the socialist utopian colony New Australia in Paraguay in 1893.
And let us not forget the beliefs of the Indigenous people of what we now call Queensland, including the Torres Strait Islander people. These beliefs go back many tens of thousands of years, and have a strong emphasis on resource management.
There are also many other smaller groups and belief systems too. Think of them as meme based startups that failed to scale.
But, here at QLDstartupshowcase, we are interested in secular and non-theist belief systems. Capitalism, socialism, utopianism, ... all the 'isms are belief systems.
Our first, and maybe the only ever, listing for a belief system as innovation goes to Eearth founded by Guy Lane. It is a non-theist belief system, or set of principles that people of any background or religious faith can use to guide their life in a manner that is better for the environment.
