About The StartMate Accelerator Program:
Startmate is powered by its mentors – successful startup founders who invest their own time and money in each batch. The mentors have extensive experience growing successful tech businesses such as Atlassian co-founders, Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar.
Over 200 startups from across the country apply to be a part of each batch and 30 of these are shortlisted for interviews. Of these, we select the best 10-15.
Investment Amount & Specific Criteria:
The formal part of the investment is a three-month program:
- It begins on a local immersion trip. We then spend three months in Sydney or Melbourne.
- Through weekly lunches, dinners and other events, mentors support founders to supercharge their businesses.
- The official part of the program ends with 2 Demo Days (Sydney & Melbourne) and a week-long immersion trip in San Francisco.
- After the program, we will still be engaged shareholders, supporting you for the long haul.
