La Trobe Accelerator Program

La Trobe is launching a new initiative to support and grow Victoria’s thriving start-up culture. The State Government through its LaunchVic initiative has committed $1 million to help establish the La Trobe Accelerator Program (LTAP) in our campuses in Melbourne, Bendigo, Shepparton and Albury/Wodonga.

Beginning in 2017, the University will conduct a series of competitive interviews and pitching sessions to select 10 start-up companies each year. LTAP will provide successful teams with the right tools to launch their businesses. Every year budding startups will receive $20,000 in funding, office space, industry experience, mentoring, and networking opportunities.

Stay tuned for updates and further announcements.
