The Velocity Program is a part-time program for earlier stage founders. The program comprises of 10 workshops centred around customer discovery and market validation with specialised experiences for both for-profit and for-purpose entrepreneurs.

The Velocity program helps early-stage founders pressure test their startups – speeding up their discovery of first customers and pathway to product-market fit. Open to both for-profit and impact startups, it is important to us that both types of founders influence and motivate each other to succeed in business and in impact.

Over 10 weeks, the Velocity program will support you with evening workshops that include expert speakers, founder stories and group activities to challenge and inspire you. Starting with a focus on customer validation and defining your value proposition, they guide you through the process of signing your first customers. The Velocity program aims to give you clarity and guidance that will help you make the decisions that increase the probability of your success. They do this through our carefully designed program, and by surrounding you with a cohort of high-potential founders.

In 2022, they are running two Velocity Programs with the support of LaunchVic. Their first program for the year will begin in April and will be delivered completely online. In the second half of 2022, they will deliver the Velocity Program in person at their offices in Melbourne Connect. With the flexibility of virtual and in-person programs, you can now be part of the MAP alumni community from anywhere in Victoria.

The program costs $500 per founder. No University of Melbourne affiliation is required for this program. To be eligible for their Velocity Online program, the participating founder must be located in Victoria and have registered or intend to register their company in the State of Victoria.
