With the surprise withdrawal of NORTEC is has left a short lead time to get everything ready for clients and they are looking for suggestions of what the site should be called.

‘It started with the name CLIC business village, then Mullumbimby innovation hub and a host of other names like the courtyard, The gateway, The sustainability centre and Mullum central.

Square donkey got a good run until we realised it means idiot in polish,’ continued Paul with a laugh.

With an exciting prize, yet to be announced, they are asking everyone in the community to come up with some interesting and dynamic names for the new business innovation site.

Sourdough spokesman mark Holden explained, ‘The name should reflect our mission and that is all about growing innovative and sustainable businesses and creating enterprise and jobs in our Byron region. It could be geographic, historic, descriptive, inspirational or a bit quirky: A name that the community will identify with and become a source of pride.’

And the prize is…

‘Glorification at our gala opening with complementary champagne and a $100 prize if an acceptable logo is included.,’ said Paul.

‘The CLIC Board will adjudicate and have final decision.’
