Australian biotech startup taking on world after joining Bay Area tech campus Rocketspace

Gold Coast biotech startup taking on the world

A key to the long-term success of 4Jointz®, the revolutionary natural remedy for arthritis being launched this November by Arthritis Relief Plus Ltd (ARP), is its selection by the Australian federal government for the Landing Pad initiative.

What’s a Landing Pad, and what does it have to do with swollen joints?

It’s a program that selects the most dynamic and innovative startups to set up offices at the Bay Area tech campus Rocketspace. The Australian government launched a number of Landing Pads across the globe—in Shanghai, Tel Aviv, Singapore and Berlin—to help entrepreneurs bring their ideas to market and build high-growth and high-return enterprises.

Rocketspace is an innovation ecosystem whose alumni include Spotify and Uber. It provides startups with a collaborative workspace, allowing them to pursue international opportunities.

4JOINTZ latest of innovative Australian products

Arthritis affects more than one in five adults in the United States and, according to the Center for Disease Control, is the most common cause of disability and one of the most common chronic conditions. Given the millions seeking a cure for joint pain, the potential market for 4Jointz could be very large.

The pain relief cream’s success is part of a long line of innovative Australian health care products, ranging from the 'bionic ear' to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices to treat sleep apnea.

It’s estimated there are more than 60 startups on the Gold Coast and the region has been successful in securing substantial funding commitments for startups.

With rising student numbers and a supportive startup ecosystem, the Gold Coast is fast becoming a major player in Australia's innovation story.
