VENUE TBC

Calling all founders!

This September Startup Victoria will be partnering with Giant Leap Fund to find four impact startups who fuse profit with purpose.

We're looking for founders to pitch on the night across industries including: healthtech, edtech, agtech, cleantech, fintech, and HR tech. If this sounds like you or someone you know, we’d love you to get in touch.

‘Impact startups’ are commercially minded businesses driving positive social or environmental change, such as:

- Sendle – Australia’s only carbon neutral delivery service helping Australian small businesses thrive through parcel delivery that is simple, reliable and affordable.

- Your Grocer – An online platform connecting consumers with local, independent shops.

- Switch Automation – A smart building platform, improving building efficiency and delivering exceptional occupant experiences.

- GlamCorner – Australia’s leading designer dress rental platform shifting consumers away from fast fashion.

- Perx – A platform that uses gamification and behavioural psychology to improve medication adherence.

If you want to put your startup in front of a panel of VCs, industry experts, and a great supportive crowd of engineers, designers, marketers and fellow entrepreneurs, this is for you.

Please submit your application to pitch here by Tuesday 4 September: https://startup-victoria.typeform.com/to/DsPFdH

To come and support the startups selected for the night, please register a ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/pitch-night-impact-tickets-48475410257

We look forward to seeing you there!
