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 and to work in collaboration with our partners Deakin University and Federation University to support entrepreneurship in regional Victoria.

Beginning in 2017, the University will conduct a series of competitive interviews and pitching sessions to select up to 10 teams to enter the program. LTAP will provide successful teams with the right tools to launch their businesses, including up to $20,000 in funding, office space, industry experience, mentoring, and networking opportunities.

Stay tuned for updates and further announcements.
