The La Trobe Accelerator aims to achieve more than conventional commercial accelerators. We vary from other Victorian accelerators by having a strong presence in regional areas across the state, mediated through our campuses in Albury/Wodonga, Bendigo, Mildura and Shepparton. We are also working with Deakin University and Federation University to expand our reach.
Also, unlike many commercial accelerators that focus exclusively on a narrow business sector, the La Trobe Accelerator will be broadly inclusive with respect to the business sectors that it supports and, in particular, will encourage participation by founders of social impact ventures as well conventional for-profit ventures.
The La Trobe Accelerator is currently the only accelerator program in Victoria that is delivered across multiple sites. To find out more about each of the campuses where the La Trobe Accelerator will run in 2017, please see the below links:
Each location will have individual selection panels, mentors, investors and trainers that understand their surrounding community. Teams that participate in the La Trobe Accelerator will benefit from their immediate environment, combined with a strong global entrepreneurial community able to bring the best help and advice for all start-ups in all areas enrolled in the program.
