Office Hours

Become an Advisor

Office hours is a chance for founders to seek out advisors with the help of Startup Vic. Whether you need some specific advice on an area of your startup, or more general direction, advisors have a wealth of experience to share.

You can browse through the profiles below to find the advisor most suited to your challenge.

Please note, this is not a mentoring relationship. The Office Hours Program offers one-off calls of 30 minutes to solve challenges, point you in the right direction or bounce some ideas around.

You can view the terms and conditions for the Office Hours Program here. To book a time with an office hours advisor, you will need to sign up as a Future Founder, Founder or Growth Club membership with Startup Vic.
