Startup Gippsland has formally opened applications for its 2020 Incubator program.

Startup Gippsland is back, bigger and better in 2020 with there being three different programs to support entrepreneurs:
• A 12-week Incubator Program for early-stage startups to focus, validate and grow their business or idea. Applications for this program are open now until April 12.
• A 12-week Accelerator Program for later-stage startups to prepare their business for scale and international expansion. Applications for this program will open late 2020.
• An Open Program of one-off events for startups at all stages to learn business fundamentals like business modelling, pitching and exporting. No application is needed for these one-off events, simply RSVP via Eventbrite. Events will begin in July.

Startup Gippsland 2020 is a project by the Bass Coast Shire, Baw Baw Shire, East Gippsland Shire, Latrobe City, South Gippsland Shire and Wellington Shire councils, funded by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, and delivered by GippsTech.
