Why Plus Eight?

We believe Western Australia has the right ingredients to be a world-leading innovation and startup centre.

We believe Western Australia has the right ingredients to be a world-leading innovation and startup centre. Plus Eight was launched in 2016 by WA's leading technology hub, Spacecubed, as a seed-funded accelerator program helping local startups go global. Backed by BetterLabs, Hawaiian and other major players, Plus Eight has invested over $1.5 million in 20 startups over three cohorts.

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

Over sixty percent of the world’s population lives within two hours of Perth’s GMT Plus Eight-time zone, a major competitive advantage for local business. We believe access to these fast-growing global markets is a competitive advantage for WA startups and aim to help foster collaboration between Australian founders and our neighbours to the north.
