We are looking for ambitious founders, working as part of a balanced team to solve global problems they are passionate about, with high potential to scale.

Discover the fundamentals of building a strong startup

A phased approach to building your startup

Our accelerator program is split into three phases, beginning with a rigorous weekend bootcamp and on the spot feedback from facilitators and mentors. Following the weekend, only the strongest founders are selected to continue into Phase One, which includes nine weeks filled with Entrepreneur in Residence sessions, masterclasses with industry experts, 1 on 1 mentoring and more.

Founders then pitch for their place in Phase Two, where a final 6-12 startups will be chosen to continue and access a pool of seed-funding. Phase Two includes an international immersion and final Demo Night.
Discover international markets and reach global scale

An international immersion experience

As part of Phase Two, we take founders on an international trip, helping them be inspired, connected and immersed into a new market. We believe access to new, fast-growing global markets is a competitive advantage for Australian startups. Our program helps foster collaboration between Australian founders and our neighbours to the north.

Previous international immersion trips have included San Francisco, Singapore and London.
