ACCELERATE YOUR BUSINESS.
GROW YOUR IMPACT.
A unique business acceleration program
The Bega Valley Innovation Hub is more than just an accelerator, it offers a comprehensive and multi-faceted structured approach to empowering start ups, scale ups and entrepreneurs to rapid and sustainable growth through its connections with the iAccelerate Innovation Network, its mentors and the Educate Program.
Building sustainable businesses
The iAccelerate Educate Program is a cornerstone of the University of Wollongong’s commitment to helping build and scale sustainable businesses that have a positive impact in our region, our nation and the world. We seek out entrepreneurs that harness technology as an enabler for services and products that can be scaled and applied globally, helping people and the planet thrive.
A large percentage of start ups fail because they have a dream but no real idea of how to bring it to market. This course and the ongoing support have given me the confidence to see that my dream is going to come true and I’m taken seriously when talking with investors because I’ve been a part of the program.”
Sarah Campbell Lambert, Founder, Ginger the Frog
New intakes start with a written application then a pitch to our selection panel. Those who make the cut move to our trailblazing Educate program. Meeting the assessment criteria moves businesses into the seed funding, incubation and opportunities for further funding. The final step is graduation into the local economy as a well-prepared and sustainable business.
