Applications now open! Global Markets Accelerator Program – Cohort 2

Ready to expand globally?

La Trobe University’s Global Markets Accelerator Program can help you launch your business on a global scale and is now taking applications for its second cohort!

A major hurdle for start-ups who are looking to scale globally, is to understand if their product or service translates internationally and ensuring your team thinks and acts within a constantly changing environment.

The Global Markets Accelerator Program (GMAP) aims to boost your start-ups growth and scale potential and readiness to be apart of the global market. This exciting, two-part program consists of an online 8-week, ‘feasibility study’ that enables you to assess how well your business fits your ideal global market and environment.

The completion of this study provides an opportunity to gain access to second stage, a unique 6-month accelerator which, subject to COVID-19 international travel restrictions, will include an international immersive experience with one of our four delivery partners: imec.start (Belgium), T-Hub (India), Innovation Factory (Indonesia) or Singtel Innov8 (Singapore), either online or for 4-weeks in person. With the support of our delivery partners personalised mentoring and coaching approach, you will be supported to focus on achieving your goals.
