Event description

Description

Plus Eight Sprint is a 6-week, part-time, pre-accelerator program run out of Perth's leading technology and innovation hub, Spacecubed. It connects you with a community of successful mentors, investors and advisors to help you take your startup idea to the next level and provides the content and environment to grow your skills as a founder.

The support to help your startup succeed.

Plus Eight Sprint is the fastest way to get startup fit.

Plus Eight is a tailored made program for Australians founders, meaning that it's all action and no fluff. We followed four values when designing a the word-class Plus Eight Sprint experience.

Expert mentorship

We've sourced the most experienced startup mentors, investors and advisors to guide you throughout Sprint. Each week new mentors will share their experience and wisdom, giving you the opportunity to learn from those that have been there and done it.

Always actionable

Everything we cover through PlusEight Sprint can be directly applied to your business and will have a noticeable, positive impact regardless of where you are at in your journey.

Peer-based learning

We believe some of the best opportunities to grow as a founder is by learning from other startups going through a similar journey. Sprint provides lots of opportunities to connect and learn from other founders going through the program, and emphasises peer-based feedback and reflection.

Community & connection

It takes an entire village to raise a startup. We believe being part of a strong community of like-minded founders and advisors makes you a stronger entrepreneur and gives you the environment for your startup to succeed.
