MIC Accelerator program

Melbourne Innovation Centre's Accelerator Program will launch in the second half of 2017. Participants will grow with the support of our team of mentors, developing strength and purpose in workshops and targeted training, until hatching as a new business in the big world.

It will take place over an intensive period. 

We are hugely excited about our upcoming Acceleration Program.

Differing from our award-winning Business Incubator, which offers mentorship and support to business for up to three years, the Accelerator will focus on rapid growth and fast-tracking entrepreneurs through organisational, operation, and strategic learning curves.

Melbourne Innovation Centre will host an information session/open day for interested parties before we open for applications. Successful applicants will get pulled into our slipstream, where they will get a grip on their own business concept, gain traction attending intensive workshops, and pick up pace accessing our extensive network of business mentors, partners and investors.

We will be accepting applications for our Accelerator in the second half of 2017.
