Pitch Night: Migrant and First Generation Founders

This month Startup Victoria and Victoria University want to shine a spotlight on the Migrant and First Generation Founders here in Victoria!

As the university of Opportunity & Success, Victoria University is particularly interested in how education and entrepreneurship transforms people’s lives. And we always look for ways to actively contribute to this positive impact, be that while educating the next generation, uncovering founder insights in partnership with Startup Victoria through Found (there is something good coming up in November:-), or by growing the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the West through VU Innovations.

The potential for education and entrepreneurship to transform lives is incredibly strong for migrants and their children. Research over the years has shown that migrants and their children start more businesses, and their businesses experience higher success rates, than non-migrants. And that’s why Victoria University has partnered with Startup Victoria to find the best startup started by a Migrant or First Generation Founder.
