About the organisation:
Catalysr is an award-winning pre-accelerator for early stage startups. They run intensive entrepreneurship programs for high-performing migrant and refugee entrepreneurs - aka Migrapreneurs - who want to find success in Australia by building their own tech startup. Catalysr is a place for people with fresh ideas who are ready to dream, to work hard and to challenge themselves to bring their big ideas to life. Join a community of hackers, engineers, hustlers, scientists, thinkers, marketers, business moguls and do'ers in our collective vision to disrupt Australia.
About the opportunity:
The Accelerate Program is three months long, will be offered to up to 25 startups and will run from the 31st of August - 16th of November 2020. Starting with a Startup Bootcamp, you’ll be paired with an Entrepreneur in Residence who will act as your mentor throughout the program. You’ll meet with your EiR once a week to check in on your progress and get help with your goals. In addition to this, you‘ll attend weekly events hosted by the Catalysr team every Wednesday night. The program’s weekly time commitment is approximately 2 - 3 hours (outside of normal business hours).

  • Migrapreneur Led: There must be at least one first-generation migrant or refugee co-founder in your team.
  • Early Stage: Your startup must be less than 2 years old.
  • Registered: Your business must be incorporated or, at minimum, operating under a sole tradership.
