The La Trobe Accelerator Program, in partnership with Deakin and Federation Universities, and supported by LaunchVic, provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to accelerate the development of their start-up.
The eight participating teams have gone through a 12-week program to help develop their business ideas, and to get them ready to launch their own start-up. They have received mentoring from industry leaders, advice from innovative workshops, access to La Trobe resources and up to $20,000 equity-free seed funding.
The 2017 program concludes with the Graduation Ceremony, which promises to be an exciting platform for the start-ups to gain recognition and potentially secure further investment at the end of the incubation period. The eight start-ups will pitch their businesses to an expected audience of investors, government and industry stakeholders.
The keynote speakers will be:
- The Honourable Minister Philip Dalidakis, Victorian Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade
- Professor John Dewar, Vice-Chancellor, La Trobe University
