2017 Female Founders Q&A
Female Founders, we want YOU!
Join us for a more intimate session to chat about our acceleration and development programs, the startup accelerator application process, how we can support you and much more!
Because we're serious about supporting female founders through the startup journey, we're running a special workshop just for you. In an informal setting have all your questions answered about acceleration for your startup.
Startups who gain entry into the MAP startup accelerator will obtain:
- $20,000 funding (no equity taken);
- Structured mentoring;
- Office workspace;
- Unparalleled networking opportunities; and
- Pitching opportunities in Australia and Silicon Valley.
If you’re interested in applying for the MAP startup accelerator, the process has 4 stages:
- Online application (including a 3-minute video);
- Pitch night;
- Interview (with MAP); and
- Interview (with selection panel)
MAP is also offering a new intensive acceleration program for earlier-stage startups in 2017. Find out more about this new part-time program and how it can help you take your startup to the next level.
Join Lisian Teh (MAP Development Manager) and Maxine Lee (MAP Accelerator Manager) to discuss:
- The best program for your needs;
- Eligibility requirements;
- Selection stages;
- Selection criteria; and
- Tips for applying!
In addition to the MAP startup accelerator, MAP offers a range of development programs and intensive acceleration options. No matter the sector, stage or size of your startup, we have a program for you. If you're interested in applying but are unsure if you're eligible or ready to apply, this workshop is also for you!
