Industry Partners

Industry leaders play an important role in building an environment for entrepreneurial success and growth in both Melbourne and Victoria. They do this by getting involved, investing in the community, paying it forward and lending their voice and support to the greater ecosystem.

The support of our industry partners helps us create programs and implement events to grow the culture and environment here in Victoria, so we want to give a huge thanks to them.

Strategic Partner – Victoria University

We want to specially recognise Victoria University as a strategic partner of Startup Victoria. Together, we want to stimulate and enrich the startup ecosystem here in Victoria through a focus on keeping the entrepreneurial spirit alive and support startups in an ever-changing environment.

One product of this relationship is the Duct Tape magazine, showcasing stories of rapid-growth, globally-minded startups from a diverse and diffused set of backgrounds.
