Business Overview

Startup Gippsland is a regional accelerator program which supports anyone in Gippsland wanting to develop, launch or scale a business that aims to reach national or international scale. It includes public events such as meetups, one-off masterclasses and a pitch showcase of local startups. For successful applicants, there is a 12-week program to accelerate the growth of your business, giving you the skills to quickly scale up.

Startups are businesses that aim to reach national or international scale, which are technology-enabled and have some element of innovation. In 2019, the first year of the program, 46 startups went through the program. Many founders started the program with just an idea, and achieved great results such as successfully testing their business idea with customers, prototyping their product or service, making their first sales, launching their websites, and developing connections with partners, distributors and suppliers to scale their business to the next level. Read the stories of our successful startup founders on the Startup Gippsland website, and fill out the expression of interest form if you'd like to hear when applications next open.

Startup Gippsland is an initiative from the Bass Coast Shire, Baw Baw Shire, Latrobe City and Wellington Shire councils, funded by LaunchVic and delivered by GippsTech.
