Melbourne Accelerator Program

The Melbourne Accelerator Program (MAP) was launched in 2012, as the first University-aligned startup accelerator in Australia, and has since supported over 150 startups, who have raised over $100 million in funding, generated over $150 million in revenue, and created over 1400 new jobs.

Each year 10 teams are selected to take part in the five-month Startup Accelerator, where they receive mentoring from some of Australia’s most brilliant business minds, as well as access to a global network of advisors, channel partners and investors, and $20,000 in funding (with no equity taken) to help them accelerate their startup growth.

The MAP also offers a range of additional programs and events to the broader startup ecosystem, including the Velocity Program(a part-time program for early stage founders), the Franklins (a female-founders network), the Master Class series, and a range of signature events including the University’s premier entrepreneurial event, the Melbourne Entrepreneurship Gala.

The Melbourne Accelerator Program is committed to fostering an environment focused on diversity, inclusion, collaboration, and impact, and is one of the only accelerator programs with a full-time social impact manager and are proud to have our first not-for-profit startup joining the Accelerator Program in 2018.
