We invest in startups with big ideas, exceptional teams, and loads of passion. Over an intensive 3 month program, we help our companies build better products, accelerate their growth and build successful – and globally scalable – businesses.
Once a year, the MAP Startup Accelerator funds a group of startups (currently 8 per intake) from the alumni of Melbourne University and its partners, and works intensively with them to grow their businesses.
As Optus and SingTel Group's corporate venture capital team in Australia, we’ve got funding, resources and access to one of Asia’s largest telco groups. Initially known as a seed stage investor, we now focus our investments at Series A opportunities. We also proud to be a supporter of grassroots initiatives that help grow the Australian tech startup ecosystem.
Startmate is a network of founders offering mentorship and seed financing to technical teams creating global Internet startups from Australia. Over 200 startups from across the country apply each year and 25 of these are shortlisted for interviews. Of these, we select the best eight.
Run by Kim Heras of 25Fifteen and Roger Kermode of HP, PushStart is a community-first organisation that starts, grows, then shuts down services based on gaps between services available and the needs of startup founders in Australia.
Not all tech accelerators are created equal. Like many other incubator and accelerator programs we provide finance and mentors. But unlike other programs, we also give you access to large customer bases with the right product-market fit for your ideas.
Slingshot programs provide an opportunity to work with large Australian corporates to develop commercial and investment relationships.
