Event description
Join us at the 2020 MAP Launch for your first chance to see the successful pitches from the 10 teams who'll be part of this year's program.

About this Event

From unmanned underwater robots to recycled bottles made into raincoats, meet MAP’s 2020 cohort and see these teams present their successful pitches at this year’s Melbourne Accelerator Program Launch.

We’ve partnered with Ticker TV to bring you a Launch like no other, teaming up to take over the studio and celebrate the 10 startups who’ve been selected as part of this year’s cohort, as well as bringing you many other surprises throughout the night.

We’ll be joined by special guests, including our Vice-Chancellor Professor Duncan Maskell as well as welcoming our very own Georgia McDonald as your host for the evening, and Jordyn Evans and Simon Murphy coming to you LIVE from the green room.

We invite you to join us for this power-hour of pitches, and following the show you’ll have the chance to meet the teams, take part in a speed networking experience, or even stay on the main stage to hear a special DJ set from the legendary George Hedon (Founder of PauseFest / aka DJ Obsolete).

We are delivering this massive event as a virtual experience for the very first time, and are thrilled to be able to welcome Founders and startup enthusiasts from all over the country and beyond.

We have designed this night to be interactive. This isn't a one-way stream, we're bringing the community together and will be leveraging a number of platforms to create conversation throughout the evening and therefore need everyone to register to ensure you have all the tools to make the most of this experience.
