Event description


Join the Shortlist for $75K investment and a place in muru-D

muru-D is Australasia's most founder-friendly startup accelerator, backed by Telstra. And we’re giving you the chance to jump the queue and to join the shortlist for our next program in Sydney (SYD5).

Come along to our event and pitch your startup for your chance to win a Golden Ticket that’ll shoot you straight through to our Top 40 shortlist for SYD5, which kicks off in end of January 2018.

We're looking for big thinkers solving world challenging problems with tech. Think AR, VR, robotics, computer vision for self driving cars, edtech and healthtech.

We’re open to anyone with a huge vision and massive dedication to do something genuinely meaningful!

Golden Pitch Event Details

You’ve got 60 seconds to wow a panel of judges with your startup idea and team. Winners receive a golden ticket, which guarantees them an interview and a spot in our top 40.

Last year two of the startups pitching at this event were accepted into the muru-D program. Now you know why it’s called a “Golden Ticket”

Want to Pitch?

Easy, just select an ‘I want to Pitch’ Ticket.

Great, grab yourself an ‘I want to Watch’ Ticket.

The details:

  • Doors open at 6PM

  • Pitches commence at 6.30PM sharp

  • Winners announced and networking

  • Event concludes 8.30PM


I’m at idea stage only, can I still pitch?

If you can clearly articulate the problem you’re solving, how big the opportunity is and why you’re the person/team to do it, then yes.

Does the whole team need to be there and pitch?

We’d love to meet your team, but if they can’t be there, no problem, just send along your best storyteller.

Do I need a slide deck?

No slide decks at this event, it’s just you and a microphone.

How many startups will win a Golden Ticket?

That depends. If there’s more than one super awesome startup pitch, we’ll consider awarding more.

How many pitches will there be on the night?

There will be a max of 40. Get in quick, so you don’t miss out!

Am I guaranteed to pitch if I'm on the waitist?

We'd love to get through as many pitches as we can on the night. Pitch orders will be in a first in, first served basis. If we have time, we will open the stage up for our waitlist and then whoever wants to pitch from the audience.

Will the winner/s be announced on the night?

Yep, they sure will.

Does it cost anything to attend?

Nope. Zero. You’ll just need a ticket.

My startup is producing dog collars, am I eligible to pitch?

That depends. If your dog collars have a tech component that solves a wide spread problem, then yes. If it’s simply a bedazzled fashion item to help a pooch stand out at the park, then no. (Even though we do love fashion forward pooches)

How do I get there?

We’re located at 175 Liverpool Street, just opposite Museum Station. There are also plenty of buses that drive past our door.

Will I be fed?

Yes, drinks and nibbles will be provided!

Is there parking?

Yep, there is a Wilson Parking station located at the basement of our building. Entry after 5pm is a flat rate of $9. For more information, click here.

There is also metered on street parking.
