Each month we host our signature Startup Victoria Pitch Night. Each event revolves around a different theme, which can range from industry-specific (SpaceTech; EdTech) and founder-specific (Corporate Culture to Startup Scene; Womxn-Led Businesses) to ethos-based (Impact; Startup Survivors) and variety events (Best of Startup State; Rapid Risers).
The founders who pitch at our competitions are vying for The Startup Vic Prize Package. This package consists of a variety of business-related goodies for the winner to use to further develop and grow their startup. From credits and discounts to mentoring sessions and workshops, everything is covered, with the overall value of the package totalling more than $100,000.
All the prizes in the package are donated by partners, sponsors and other people and companies who are invested in helping the startup ecosystem flourish and assisting founders on their entrepreneurial journey.
