Joy Taylor


Joy is the Co-Founder and Community Manager of Canvas Coworking Space in Toowoomba, Qld, where she supports entrepreneurs by creating a collaborative community environment and hosting programmes designed to build capability, capacity and confidence. As the mother of two teenage children, Joy loves to travel with them to experience new environments, cultures and opportunities around the world.

To encourage other mothers to lean in and create opportunities which combine their passion with positive financial outcomes, Joy developed the AIM - Accelerating Innovative Mumpreneurs programme which incorporates a holistic approach to managing business growth with family requirements and personal development, which she facilitates in collaboration with mentors from the local community. To support youth to create a path to make an impact, rather than just get a job, Joy is encouraging youth to explore the opportunities that entrepreneurship and digital knowledge can provide. Joy created Founderfest to provide teenagers with an
entrepreneurship experience, in a guided and supported way, encouraging collaboration with peers and mentors, to recognise their potential by focusing on their strengths and the benefits of being part of a team with others who enjoy different aspects of business development.

In 2016, Joy became a Champion for CoderDojo, creating the local chapter of this international organisation that teaches children how to become creators of technology by teaching them to read and write code. These activities have resulted in Joy being recognised in 2016 as an Advance Queensland Community Digital Champion.
