Qantas is calling on the world’s best startups, scaleups and digital disruptors to help with its innovation agenda.
Qantas has launched the AVRO Accelerator, an initiative giving start-ups the chance to work with Qantas Group mentors and pitch ideas to streamline the travel experience, design smarter ways of working, unlock the potential of new technologies and help solve business problems.
The 12-week program has been designed in partnership with Slingshot, Australia’s first and most experienced corporate accelerator program.
Importantly the program also focuses on high growth scaleups providing them with a separate program that provides direct access to the Qantas Group focusing on uncovering potential commercial and investment partnerships
The program provides access to Qantas and industry mentors, participants will be able to tap into some of the Qantas Group’s operational data, technology platforms and anonymised customer insights to bring their ideas to life.
For a deeper look at the program, we invite you to take part in the national roadshow event series.
Join David Parfett (Head of Group Innovation & Ventures, Qantas), Craig Lambert and Trent Bagnall (Co-Founders, Slingshot) and Brendan Yell (Qantas AVRO Accelerator EIR) at Sydney's Adobe offices as they detail what startups and scaleups can expect from the program as well as the application criteria.
