LaunchVic: Fuelling the Startup State

Established in 2016, LaunchVic has been actively supporting Victoria’s startups through a number of funding rounds focused on developing the state’s startup ecosystem.  

Kate will talk about LaunchVic’s mission to position Victoria as an internationally recognised startup ecosystem and the role strong regional startup hubs will play in achieving this.  She’ll share her views on how regional centres of excellence with strong connections between each other and back to Melbourne can foster local entrepreneurship. Kate will also provide advice for local startups on the best way to connect into the active Melbourne startup community.
