The Melbourne Accelerator Program is the pre-eminent entrepreneurship program in Australia. We run a startup accelerator that, through a competitive selection process, awards $20k, office space, mentoring and travel to Sydney & Silicon Valley to top startups.
We also run non-accelerator Public Forums, Master Classes and Velocity (feeder) Programs designed to inspire, connect and up-skill budding entrepreneurs.
Our primary audience is the 50,000 staff & students on at the University of Melbourne, but we also engage with alumni, industry (corporate partners e.g. Big 4 banks, service firms, law firms) and both State and Federal government.
Going forward, MAP aims to become the leading entrepreneurship program globally. Therefore our branding is aligned with thought-leadership, excellence in outcomes (producing sustainable companies), providing a great entrepreneurial education and bringing forward the next generation of great entrepreneurs.
