About Plus Eight

Who we are and what we're about.

We're on a mission to support early-stage Australian entrepreneurs and startups.

We believe it takes an entire village to build a sustainable innovation and startup ecosystem. Plus Eight is proud to be a community-driven collaboration between a number of leading startup advocates, partner organisations and funding partners.

Launched in 2016 by leading technology hub, Spacecubed, as a seed-funded accelerator program helping local startups go global with over $2.5M invested through the program, $16M+ in follow-on investments and a $110M+ latest portfolio valuation.

In 2018, Plus Eight expanded on the success of the Accelerator program by launching the Plus Eight Academy, a series of world-class entrepreneur education offerings helping early stage founders and startups succeed through featuring the best local and international mentors.
