Pitch Night: Direct to Consumer

Calling all D2C founders!

This April, Startup Victoria are shining the spotlight on startups and founders creating and selling products direct to consumer!

We’re looking for founders to pitch on the night who have new, innovative and exciting products they are selling direct-to-consumer. Any industry is welcome – whether you’re selling consumables, new tech, wearables or something new we haven’t seen before, we want to hear from you!

4 finallists will be selected from the pool of applicants to pitch on the night to a room of industry professionals, fellow founders and an expert panel of judges. The winner will be the proud recipient of The Startup Vic Prize Package, full of business goodies for you and your startup!



To apply fill in this form by COB 18 April!
