Tech start-ups in New South Wales will now have an open window to accessible mentorship and funding from a collaboration between Techstart – Global Capital Firm and the State government.
Techstars, known to be one of the top pre-seed investors globally, to join Sydney’s employment and innovation hub – “Tech Central,” with registrations open for its new accelerator program.
Every year, a total of 12 winning candidates will acquire investors, mentors, alumni over 13 weeks, and a network to build corporate kinships.
The program will cover founders of businesses in the initial phase of business development in markets for Fintech, Advanced manufacturing, AI, Robotics, Cloud computing, Quantum computing, Creative Tech, Climate tech, and Cyber security.
Mäelle Gavet, the chief executive officer at Techstars, shared that the investment business concluded that “anyone, anywhere” could be a world-changing business person.
She said, “From our location in Tech Central, founders will have the opportunity to participate in an accelerator program that will build upon their entrepreneurial skills, help them find product market fit, and uncover innovative solutions that can make lasting impact across the community.”
Alister Henskens, the Enterprise, Investment, and Trade minister, said that Techstars inclusion would bind Tech Central as a global innovation corridor.
The Tech Central precinct contains six regions near the city center, accommodating researchers, start-ups, universities, and innovators, including the software giant – Atlassian.
Mr. Henskens said, “Already home to global powerhouses such as Atlassian, Canva, ROKT and Safety Culture, Tech Central will support the growth of next generation cutting-edge companies with the addition of Techstars.”
He further added, “Techstars graduates include 20 companies worth more than $1bn, start-ups that went on to raise millions of dollars, employ thousands of people and list publicly on stock exchanges around the world.”
Mr. Henskens said further backing for local and global accelerators and incubators would be made known in 2023.
Operating towards boosting the New South Wales start-up habitat and capabilities of the small-and-medium enterprises are a few of the prime pillars that the Perrottet government’s strategy on promoting advanced digital tech stands for.
