Support For Regional Victorian Startup Entrepreneur Programs

Date/Deadline: 21 Jul, 2023

LaunchVic has proudly supported the development of regional startup ecosystems across Victoria. However, there is more work to do – only 3% of founders identify as regional despite 25% of Victoria’s population living outside Melbourne. LaunchVic wants to build a vibrant regional Victorian startup community by helping early-stage ecosystem development activities in regional centres.

LaunchVic is inviting Expressions of Interest from New and Existing organisations recommending the areas of programming required to grow their local startup ecosystem with the objectives of:

– Encouraging startup ecosystem development activities in regional Victoria
– Encouraging people to consider a pathway into the startup ecosystem
– Increasing the number of early-stage startups being created in regional Victoria.

Programs currently funded by LaunchVic that operate in regional Victoria and are seeking re-funding and consortia proposals will be considered.

The successful EOI applicants will be invited to submit a detailed Request for Proposal (RFP). Successful RFP applicants will receive funding of between $50,000 and $300,000 (exclusive of GST) over 1-2 years. Funds can be used for Operating Costs.

They are seeking ideas that will support startup entrepreneurship in regional Victoria and increase the number of early-stage startups.
